Ophelia could brush by the Azores this weekend.

Ophelia is racing across the Atlantic at 6mph and is forecast to reach hurricane strength tomorrow.

Tropical Storm Ophelia is on the verge of becoming a hurricane in the northeastern Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center said Ophelia is now a Category 1 storm located about 760 miles southwest of the Azores.

The 2017 hurricane season was forecast by NOAA, and many other forecast products to be the busiest we have seen since 2010.

The White House also said it was "open" to a discussion on bump stocks, as did House Speaker Paul Ryan. "And if he feels that action is necessary, he'll take it".

The hurricane center says some strengthening is in the forecast and Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane any time Wednesday or Thursday. That has not happened since 1893, according to McNoldy.

On August 9th, the National Hurricane Center updated their 2017 outlook and predicted it was going to be an above average season. Ophelia will then run into an approaching deep-layer trough that will make the hurricane accelerate toward the northeast. 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.

Ophalia is presently the only storm the NHC is tracking in the Atlantic or Pacific.

"This is a relatively unusual track for a hurricane to take, but it's not unheard of", said UK Met Office forecaster Aiden McGivern in a video.

This could bring a blast of high winds to the Emerald Isle, particularly the western half of Ireland early next week.
