One of the fun things about the weather in the autumn in the UK is that most of those big storms that come barrelling in off the Atlantic are ex-hurricanes. Course, the forecasters can never say as such ('Expect heavy rain tonight as the remnants of that hurricane that killed all those people in the Caribbean and caused the US to evacuate a few major cities and even remember to take the poor people along with them this time' is not a forecast calculated to keep blood pressures low amongst viewers).

But 'tis so. Next Wednesday there's a good chance it will precipitate mightily in Belfast and it's all down to ex Hurricane Hanna...
