Tropical Storm Ophelia not a hurricane yet; no threat to the US

Tropical Storm Ophelia not a hurricane yet; no threat to the US

Hurricane Ophelia continued to strengthen late Wednesday (Oct. 11), with winds reaching 85 miles per hour, as the storm continued a slow trek through the eastern Atlantic toward Ireland, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"I am not quite sure what to make of it", Dr Klotzbach told Bloomberg. If it picks up speed, it could intensify over the next day or so, then encounter increasing wind shear in three days that should cause it to weaken and fall apart over the weekend, National Hurricane Center forecasters said. It is also expected to make a gradual turn to the northeast starting Thursday night. There were two others, Harvey and Jose, that reached Category 4 strength.

Additionally, the 2017 hurricane season has been busy - there were two Category 5 storms: Irma and Maria. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms.

More information about the hurricane can be found online. Incidentally, all of them have arrived in the months of August or September, except for Hurricane Fran, which swept past the area in October 1973 and Hurricane Alex in January 2016.
