Hurricane Ophelia becomes 10th hurricane of 2017

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

Hurricane Season does not officially end until November 30th.

The NHC said Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane either late Wednesday or early Thursday. "These factors should provide some low-octane fuel favoring slight strengthening", National Hurricane Center forecaster Lixion Avila wrote in the 11 a.m. advisory.

The storm's current path shows it maintaining hurricane strength as it moves through the Atlantic offshore Portugal, before reaching Ireland as a post-tropical or extratropical storm, which could still have wind speeds greater than 39 miles per hour, sometime early Monday morning.

The 2017 hurricane season was forecast by NOAA, and many other forecast products to be the busiest we have seen since 2010. This has not happened in 124 years, or since 1893.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that Ophelia was located about 780 miles (1,260 kilometers) west-southwest of the Azores.

Ross Cockrell entered the game when the Giants used their nickel sub-package, bumping Rodgers-Cromartie back inside. The expectation, I know, is just go out there and get it done because a lot has been invested in us.

Forecasters say Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane by Thursday.

It is unlikely Ophelia makes a direct hit on the Azores, but, at a minimum, some outer rain bands and gusty winds could impact eastern portions of the Portuguese archipelago this weekend.

Tropical storm: A tropical cyclone that has wind speeds of between 39 miles per hour and 73 miles per hour.

The Weather Network forecast that Ophelia will merge with another system as it approaches the United Kingdom and Ireland before veering east. Strongest winds are far from the center and higher in the atmosphere.
