Tropical Storm Ophelia to Become Record-Tying 10th Straight Atlantic Hurricane Soon, Then an Intense Post-Tropical

Tropical Storm Ophelia to become HURRICANE on path to UK: 'Wet and windy' weather forecast

Ophelia is now located across the north-central Atlantic Ocean, roughly 2400 miles from the Grand Strand. Its core was located about 785 miles (1,265 kilometers) southwest of the Azores and it was moving to the southeast at 6 mph (9 kph).

Tropical Storm Ophelia is becoming better organized far out in the eastern Atlantic and is expected to become a hurricane later this week.

Ophelia was no threat to the US but could move near the Azores by the weekend.

"Although the ocean is not too warm, the shear is low and the upper-troposphere is cool".

Ophelia is the 10th hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic season.

Ophelia is slowly drifting east at less than 5 miles per hour.

Ophelia is expected to slow down and turn toward to the east-northeast by Thursday night or Friday, according to the hurricane center's forecast.

The hurricane center expects Ophelia to top out as a Category 1 hurricane with 80 miles per hour winds before becoming a post-tropical or extra-tropical system toward the end of the 5-day forecast period.

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. "However, despite the much improved satellite appearance, it appears that the increased convective organization has not yet translated into an increase in the surface winds based on a 1204Z ASCAT-B overpass, which only showed winds of 30-31 knots in the southern quadrant".

Tropical Storm Ophelia is the latest weather system to whip up winds and rain in the Atlantic.

Post-tropical cyclone: A former tropical cyclone that no longer has a well-defined center but could still have strong winds and drop heavy rainfall.
