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

A STORM hurtling towards Scotland across the Atlantic has been upgraded to a hurricane, prompting concern among Brits. The storm rapidly intensified before making landfall in Texas on August 25 as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.

That is the situation we are now monitoring as Hurricane Ophelia became the Atlantic's tenth hurricane on Wednesday - also becoming a record-tying tenth straight named storm to intensify into a hurricane, the first time this has occurred since 1878.

"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 storm will no longer be hurricane strength by the time it hits Britain What is the latest United Kingdom weather forecast?

Such a record streak hasn't happened since 1893.

Perhaps the most impressive statistic is that if Ophelia strengthens to a hurricane, which it is forecast to do, it will be the tenth consecutive hurricane. This makes 10 straight hurricanes in the modern era an even more impressive feat.

A combination of a vigorous Atlantic weather system and the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will pass close to Ireland on Monday, and has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country.

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean. But that will not have a significant impact on its overall strength as it nears Europe, as Ophelia is expected to have winds of up to 75 miles per hour.

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