A Hurricane Is Set To Hit Ireland On Monday

Ophelia becomes 10th straight Atlantic hurricane, marking busiest season since 1983

Ophelia may not threaten the US - but it could move near the Azores islands, and the National Hurricane Center on Thursday cautioned those in the islands to keep an eye on the storm.

Hurricane Ophelia, signalled to arrive on our shores on Monday, will be downgraded from an ex-hurricane and an ex-tropical storm by the time it reaches Ireland and the United Kingdom, but the ECM model shows the current track of its strongest winds travelling across west Munster through midlands, and into north Leinster.

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean.

Mr Burkhill said cold sea temperatures mean Ophelia will not be strong enough to be categorised as a hurricane when it hits Britain.

As of 5:00 a.m. ET, the storm has maximum sustained winds of near 85 mph, and some strengthening could happen over the next 48 hours.

Ophelia is forecast to drift northeast through today and to pass just south of the Azores into the weekend.

"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".

The Category 1 storm now poses no threat to land, forecasters said, and no watches or warnings have been issued.

Ireland's weather service, Met Eireann, said the system "has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country" and issued a severe weather advisory for the area.

The Met Office has also said there is a "slight chance" of damage to buildings, like tiles falling from roofs.
