  • Hurricane Ophelia path update spaghetti model

Hurricane Ophelia on Thursday morning (Oct. 12) was slowly moving through the Atlantic Ocean toward the Azores and Ireland.

The 10th hurricane of the 2017 Hurricane Season: Ophelia, continues to swirl in the northeastern Atlantic. It is important to note we are still a week out and the models will likely vary in exact timing and position of Ophelia over the next few forecast runs.

"After that, indications are that by that point it will then have weakened and be no longer a hurricane or tropical storm - it will be extratropical".

Ahead of the heavy wind and rain Hurricane Ophelia will bring with it, temperatures are set to reach 20 degrees over the weekend.

The Met Office: "Ophelia will no longer be a hurricane, but will most likely still be a detailed low pressure system bringing strong winds across Northern Ireland and western parts of the United Kingdom".

It will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England overnight on October 15, caused £1 billion worth of damage and left 18 people dead. For the last time, so many storms had become hurricanes in 1893.

The west coast of Ireland and Scotland are expected to suffer most with strong winds.
