Tropical Storm Ophelia close to becoming a hurricane

Tropical Storm Ophelia close to becoming a hurricane

The National Hurricane Center predicts the storm to maintain hurricane strength for the next few days and could even gain a little strength.

Assuming Ophelia reaches hurricane status with maximum sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher, it would be the 10th consecutive Atlantic named storm to become a hurricane. The core of Ophelia is located about 1,220 kilometres southwest of the Azores and the storm is moving east at 3 6 km/h.

Ophelia is the 10th hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic season. Could western Europe be the next land area afflicted by a powerhouse storm this disgusting hurricane season?

"If I only had conventional satellite imagery, I would definitely estimate that Ophelia was a hurricane", NHC forecaster Lixion Avila said.

Hurricane Ophelia formed Wednesday in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Moses later tweeted that if separated, there would be a tropical storm, then a separate hurricane, which would make the 10-straight-hurricane record invalid.

By the time Ophelia reaches northern Europe, it may no longer be a tropical system, instead possibly transitioning into a powerful extratropical low pressure area. A named storm is classified as anything that becomes a tropical storm, which has sustained winds above 38 miles per hour.

This would tie the record for the most consecutive Atlantic named storms to reach hurricane strength. Strongest winds are far from the center and higher in the atmosphere.
