  • Ireland, United Kingdom urged to monitor Hurricane Ophelia

Hurricane Ophelia had been expected to strike Portugal, but could now be moving towards the Republic of Ireland and possibly also Northern Ireland and western Scotland on Monday.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ophelia is barely moving and is continuing to strengthening, now boasting top sustained winds of 100 miles per hour (kph).

Ophelia is the record 10th consecutive storm in the Atlantic this season to reach hurricane intensity, following on from the devastation of Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia and Maria in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

While there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect for this storm, people in the Zores, Ireland and United Kingdom are urged to monitor its progress.

Hurricane Ophelia is meandering far out at sea in the eastern Atlantic, southwest of the Azores. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms.

The NHC says Ophelia is barely moving and is continuing to strengthening, now boasting top sustained winds of 100 miles per hour.

Hurricane-force winds extended up to 25 miles from Ophelia's center Friday morning, and tropical-storm-force winds extended up to 90 miles, forecasters said.

Only slight weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

The hurricane center's five-day forecast, which can change, has Ophelia heading toward the British Isles by Monday.

"Environmental conditions could become a little more conductive for some development early next week while the system subsequently moves northward over the west-central Atlantic Ocean".

Experts at the U.S. Hurricane Centre confirmed gusts of 100mph are now emanating from the centre of the hurricane.
