Wednesday's Weather Word: Ophelia

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

Ophelia could brush by the Azores this weekend.

At 11 a.m. EST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Ophelia was located near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 38.3 West. Ophelia is moving toward the southeast near 5 miles per hour (7 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue during the next day or two. Ophelia is the tenth named storm in a row to become a hurricane, which ties a record.

According to the US National Hurricane Centre in an update at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, Hurricane Ophelia was positioned around 760 miles (1220 kilometres) southwest of the Azores with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kilometres per hour).

It now has maximum sustained winds of 50mph, but will reach at least 74mph as it approaches western Europe.

Tropical Storm Ophelia is expected to strengthen to a hurricane as it spins far out over the Atlantic. If Ophelia is able to reach hurricane status it will be the 10th consecutive named storm to become a hurricane.

The other disclaimer about tropical cyclones before satellites were routinely used to examine the entire tropical Atlantic Basin in 1966 is that some tropical storms - even hurricanes - may have been missed that could have influenced any streaks, especially in the 19th century.

Earlier forecasts had suggested Ophelia could approach Spain and Portugal's Iberian Peninsula as a tropical system, which would have been unprecedented.

Tropical Storm Ophelia is the latest weather system to whip up winds and rain in the Atlantic.

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