It seems that the United Kingdom just can’t catch a break lately when it comes to the weather, as while the country has already endured the ravages of storms Clara and Dennis earlier this month, it appears that yet another one, Storm Ellen, now appears to be looming on the horizon – and the social media crowd is none too pleased about it.
As news of the advancing calamity spread across the online audience, quite a few people made it clear that yet another storm is probably the last thing they need right now.
Wait, so yet ANOTHER UK Storm? I just about had enough of storm Ciara and Storm Dennis (he was really bad). Like are these storms playing some sort of relay race with our lives? 🤔.

Some even suggested alternative names for the invading weather phenomenon.
And a number of people wondered why the recent storms seem to arrive in weekends.
Do storms only work weekends? What do they do during the week?— Andy Hart (@onedart_) February 22, 2020
So many questions....#StormEllen
There were also those, however, who insisted that Storm Ellen hasn’t even been officially named yet.

Storm Ellen has NOT been officially named yet❗️
Yes there will be some wet and windy weather over the coming days especially to start next week but as of yet there is NO storm Ellen!
