He says a combination of slightly warmer than normal water and weak upper level winds helped make that hurricane streak.

It is now forecast to stay west of Portugal before bringing gusty winds and rain to Ireland early next week. Only 15 known hurricanes have passed within 200 nautical miles of the Azores since 1851. Strongest winds are far from the center and higher in the atmosphere.
