Yes, it is being called Gertrude, mainly because it is going to whallop northern Scotland with 100mph+ gusts.

Windy here yes, but nothing exceptional. Will get a few severe gusts tomorrow morning though ahead of the cold front passage.

This storm.naming is confusing. Why isn't it a K name as johnas was last named storm? Or will J be skipped when it comes to its turn?

Jonas was American named. Had it fit the bill here it would have been Gertrude.

Jonas wasn't named Jonas by us, it was the name given by the US authorities when it was dumping the snow on them, by the time it reached UK/Ireland it wasn't strong enough to be a named storm, but there was enough crap weather associated with it that the media still picked up on the name and used it.
