At this time in the hurricane season, conditions usually begin to become unfavorable for storms to develop, but some meteorologists are saying this year is different because of warm temperatures. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms.

Ophelia may not threaten the USA - 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.

While she won't affect the United States, it's possible that she threatens not only the Azores, but Ireland and parts of the United Kingdom as well. So depending on when the transition occurs, these areas could be impacted by a hurricane or a post-tropical storm, though the hurricane or tropical strom-force winds impacting the region won't care about the official storm designation.

Ophelia became a hurricane on Wednesday, becoming the 10th hurricane in the Atlantic in 2017.

Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours. That has not happened since 1893, according to McNoldy. This set up brings some similarities to Hurricane Debbie way back in 1961 that was one of the most memorable and damaging storms in Irish history, thankfully Ophelia does not appear as ominous.

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

While the ocean waters there are not as warm as those in the Caribbean, which allowed previous storms to reach peak intensity, they are warm enough to let Ophelia maintain hurricane strength for the next several days as it picks up speed.

"But then it will continue its way towards the British Isles, probably reaching us very early next week".
