  • Tropical storm Ophelia path map from NOAA

Ophelia is racing across the Atlantic at 6mph and is forecast to reach hurricane strength tomorrow. Ophelia is the tenth named storm in a row to become a hurricane, which ties a record.

Tropical Storm Ophelia continues to strengthen as it moves to the southeast and its forecast to become a hurricane by late Wednesday or early Thursday.

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). The other years with ten consecutive hurricanes are 1878, 1886 and 1893.

The non-tropical phase of Ophelia may feature a larger, more intense storm that could bring a range of hazards to Ireland and the United Kingdom, from damaging winds to punishing waves.

The hurricane season officially, at least on paper, ends on November 30.

While Ophelia may lose the technical aspects that make it a hurricane, it could still pack a punch.

By the time Ophelia reaches northern Europe, it may no longer be a tropical system, instead possibly transitioning into a powerful extratropical low pressure area. The official forecast for Ophelia calls for the hurricane to peak at 85 miles per hour Thursday and Friday. Then Ophelia will curve north towards Ireland's west coast as a post-tropical storm. Strongest winds are far from the center and higher in the atmosphere.
