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

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said in an advisory Wednesday afternoon that Ophelia gained hurricane status as its top sustained winds reached 75 miles per hour. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday. This means the storm isn't moving from east to west, like most Atlantic hurricanes. "These factors should provide some low-octane fuel favoring slight strengthening", National Hurricane Center forecaster Lixion Avila wrote in the 11 a.m. advisory.

Ophelia will head east-northeast over the next few days and eventually make more of a northward turn through the weekend.

Hurricane Ophelia, which formed this afternoon, is the 10th consecutive hurricane this season, putting 2017 in a unique club that includes just three previous years that have spawned ten hurricanes in a row. It is possible that this has happened since 1893, but we didn't have the technology to see it.

The high action hurricane season of 2017 continues with the development of the 10th hurricane of the season.

After it has hit Portugal, the remnants of Ophelia could bring strong winds to the UK.

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

Only 15 hurricanes have passed within 200 nautical miles of the Azores since 1851, according to NOAA's historical hurricane database. Then Ophelia will curve north towards Ireland's west coast as a post-tropical storm.
