Ophelia officially strengthened into a hurricane in the far, Eastern Atlantic Wednesday evening. This means it will be much closer to Europe by this weekend than the U.S. There will likely be impacts for Ireland by early next week.

As of 10 a.m. CDT Wednesday, Tropical Storm Ophelia was located about 775 miles southwest of the Azores and was moving east at 3 mph. Four days later, Lee sprung back to life as a tropical cyclone and eventually strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane on September 27.

There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. He says a combination of slightly warmer than normal water and weak upper level winds helped make that hurricane streak.

Hurricane Ophelia may make landfall in Ireland on Monday. "I thought that storm was dead and buried in the central Atlantic".

Forecasters say Ophelia is beginning to look like a hurricane on satellite images but hasn't quite reached hurricane status yet. This type of post-analysis occurs after every hurricane season, sometimes leading to the addition of previously unnamed storms or tweaking of tropical cyclone intensities. A slow northeast drift is expected tonight and tomorrow, followed by an acceleration toward the east-northeast or northeast.

This would tie the record for the most consecutive Atlantic named storms to reach hurricane strength.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Wednesday morning are near 65 miles per hour (100 kph).

Ophelia continues to spin in the open Atlantic Ocean, posing no threat to the United States or any other part of North America.
