Ophelia Becomes 10th Atlantic Hurricane of 2017, No Land Threat

Wednesday's Weather Word: Ophelia

Tropical Storm Ophelia to become HURRICANE on path to UK: 'Wet and windy' weather forecast

Ophelia, which is not a threat to the USA, could affect the Azores, Portugal and Ireland. The core of Ophelia is located about 760 miles southwest of the Azores and the storm is moving east at 3 mph.

Ophelia is racing across the Atlantic at 6mph and is forecast to reach hurricane strength tomorrow. That ties the record for most consecutive hurricane-strength storms in the Atlantic Basin.

If Ophelia becomes a hurricane it will be the ninth so far this year in the Atlantic.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Ophelia now has top sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 kph). It is possible that this has happened since 1893, but we didn't have the technology to see it.

On August 9th, the National Hurricane Center updated their 2017 outlook and predicted it was going to be an above average season.

President Trump issued a new volley in his war of words with North Korea with a cryptic pair of tweets posted Saturday afternoon. Former Chattanooga Mayor and current Senator Bob Corker said on September 26th he would not seek re-election in 2018.

While Ophelia may lose the technical aspects that make it a hurricane, it could still pack a punch. Hurricane Season does not officially end until November 30th.

Forecasters say Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane by Thursday.

The current forecast has Ophelia becoming subtropical before it reaches the Iberian Peninsula. The storm may still be capable of producing powerful winds, on the order of 60 to 80 miles per hour, when it makes its closest approach to Ireland and the United Kingdom, which it's forecast to do on Monday.

This could bring a blast of high winds to the Emerald Isle, particularly the western half of Ireland early next week.
