Hurricane Ophelia Moving At Snail's Pace To Northeast

Hurricane Ophelia Moving At Snail's Pace To Northeast

"While post tropical Ophelia will likely bring some direct impacts from wind and heavy rain to portions of these areas, as well as unsafe marine conditions, given the forecast uncertainty at these time ranges it is too soon to determine the exact magnitude, timing and location of the impacts". "There is still a chance of one more major (Category 3) hurricane".

Ophelia is the only named storm on the board, and there no other areas of interest as of Thursday morning. The storm was moving northeast at 3 miles per hour with sustained winds near 85 miles per hour.

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean.

Ophelia is forecast to drift northeast through today and to pass just south of the Azores into the weekend.

Iran warns U.S. on designating Guards terrorist group
According to him, if any side fails to stand committed to the deal, it would be tarnishing its own reputation. The aide went on to accuse Washington of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISISISIL) terrorists.


"Although the track guidance keeps the center offshore of the Azores, a tropical storm watch or warning could be needed for the eastern Azores on Thursday because of the forecasted increase in wind radii in the northwestern quadrant of the cyclone", hurricane center forecasters said Thursday. And while cooler northern waters mean Ophelia won't have the intensity of recent storms that have slammed the U.S., it is still likely to pack hurricane-force winds.

Perhaps the most impressive statistic is that if Ophelia strengthens to a hurricane, which it is forecast to do, it will be the tenth consecutive hurricane.

Met Éireann, the Irish Meteorological Service, says Ophelia "has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country", listing strong winds, heavy rain, and high seas as likely impacts.

The remnants of Ophelia look set to reach the United Kingdom on Monday, with unsettled weather expected to cause disruption, the Met Office said.
