Abstract: Meteorological agencies of Ireland and the UK have confirmed that winter (December to February) 2013-14 (W2013/14) set records for precipitation totals and the occurrence of extreme wind speeds1,2,3. Less clear is whether storminess (characterised as the frequency and intensity of cyclones) during W2013/14 was equally unprecedented. We assess multidecadal variations in storminess by considering frequency and intensity together and find that W2013/14 was indeed exceptional. Given the potential societal impacts there is clearly a need to better understand the processes driving extreme cyclonic activity in the North Atlantic (NA).
