Large scale destruction caused by Odisha cyclone in 1999 triggered the issue of naming tropical cyclones developed in the North Indian Ocean. As a result, naming conventions for storms that develop in the India Ocean began in 2004. WMO (World Meteorological Department) asked each of the eight south Asian member countries to submit a list of their own eight names for the cyclones.

Since then the names of the tropical cyclones are assigned from the common list prepared by the member countries. Below is the list:

In the event of all these above names getting exhausted, an additional list of storm names will be added by the eight south Asian countries.

Storm names till Lehar (named by India) have been used. The above list clearly suggests, the next cyclone /storm will be called Madi (by Maldives).

Weather models at Skymet show that there are chances of formation of another system in the Indian Ocean in the cyclone season (Oct-Dec). Cyclones which form in the month of December have major impact on Tamil Nadu.
