Tropical Storm Ophelia Expected To Become A Hurricane

Hurricane Ophelia is set to pay Ireland a visit next week, after it sweeps across the Atlantic.

Gusts of up to 70mph and wet weather could batter Britain's shores as Hurricane Ophelia crosses the Atlantic Ocean in the coming days, despite other parts of the country basking in the heatwave approaching from Spain this weekend.

It is now a category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 85mph with some higher gusts.

Ophelia was moving to the northeast at 3 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour with higher gusts.

A hurricane brewing over the Atlantic threatens to bring strong winds on Monday - and a mini-heatwave.

However, Ophelia will have weakened into a post-tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the UK.

Forecaster Eleanor Bell, of The Weather Channel, said: "Latest model guidance is indicating Ophelia will move in from the Azores across the Biscay area around Sunday and move on towards Britain early next week".

Ophelia's arrival will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England overnight on October 15. This should take the system just south and east of the Azores.
