  Wild storms on the Ayrshire Coast at Prestwick (Picture: Getty) Far from the sweltering temperatures enjoyed last week, Britons will this weekend ‘be lucky’ if they manage to escape the pouring rain coming with Storm Hannah. While there will be some sporadic spells of sunshine, the Met Office said a good part of Britain will be hit by rain at some point on Friday as the storm approaches later in the evening. Temperatures will drop ten degrees as Storm Hannah, which was named by Irish forecaster Met Eireann, hits the British Isles. It will batter Northern Ireland first, with heavy rain starting at rush hour raging on throughout the night. Winds could reach a strength of 70mph. The wind in Whitley Bay (Picture: PA) Rain will hit pretty much every part of the country (Picture: Getty) A warning has been put in place in the south-west and southern Wales as gales hit highs of 70mphs. This may be extended northwards towards the Midlands depending on the severity of the storm. Met Office forecaster Craig Snell warned there may be ‘a few falling branches’ and ‘likely disruption’ but as the storm will mostly hit during night-time, the impact won’t be as severe. Saturday will also see wet and windy weather, with some improvement in Northern Ireland and southern England where there may finally be some spells of sunshine. A yellow warning has been put in place for the south (Picture: @MetOffice/Twitter) Storm clouds gather over Whitley Bay (Picture: PA) In stark contrast to the highs of 25 degrees enjoyed by Brits during the Easter Bank holiday, temperatures will peak at 13 degrees. Storm Hannah will start clearing on Saturday, meaning London Marathon participants may well have the ideal weather for their spring challenge. Temperatures in London are expected to hover around 14 degrees, up from the average 11 degrees across the country. Met Office chief forecaster Frank Saunders said: ‘We’re going to see an unsettled period over the next few days, but the forecast for later next week indicates the return of high pressure, bringing more settled conditions. ‘Storm Hannah will move away from the UK during Saturday followed by a transient ridge of high pressure bringing more settled weather to the UK for Sunday, good news for London Marathon runners.’

It’s hard to know where to start with Trent Dalton. He’s a storyteller by heart, one who is gifted or, as he puts it, cursed. “There’s this flaw in my system where I feel like I have to dazzle people with story. It’s like a sickness.”

I remember going to my first concert at the Sydney Opera House – Brian Cadd was playing and playing and the concert didn’t finish until 1am (“That old magic”, Apr 13-14). Of course everyone stayed until the end, forgetting that most of the transport in those days finished at midnight. Wendy Taylor , Byron Bay, NSW
