  • Tropical Storm Ophelia to Become Record-Tying 10th Straight Atlantic Hurricane Soon, Then an Intense Post-Tropical

Some of Ophelia's rain bands are likely to hit the Azores islands over the weekend.

Located in the central Atlantic about 760 miles southwest of the Azores, the hurricane poses no threat to land and would probably be unremarkable if not for its place in the record books.

Forecasters at the Miami center say Ophelia should gain muscle over the next 48 hours en route to becoming a hurricane sometime Thursday.

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. As of October 11th, we have seen 15 named storms, 10 have been hurricanes, and 5 were major hurricanes.

This would tie the record for the most consecutive Atlantic named storms reaching hurricane strength, which also happened in three other years: 1878, 1886 and 1893, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach, Colorado State University tropical meteorologist.

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

The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season has been very active and devastating. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms. On Wednesday afternoon, hurricane-force winds from Ophelia extended outward up to 25 miles from its center.

Beyond that, after passing off the Iberian Peninsula, the post-tropical cyclone is expected to curl northward and remain an intense storm somewhere near or off the coast of Ireland Monday or Monday night.

Center officials said the hurricane is forecast to drift northeastward over the next 24 hours.
