A stronger Hurricane Ophelia continued tracking northeastward on Thursday morning, far from the U.S.
The storm, which poses no immediate threat to land, was located Friday about 545 miles (875 kilometers) southwest of the Azores.
Tropical Storm Ophelia strengthened to a hurricane overnight and is now heading towards the United Kingdom, forecasters warn.
The Miami-based hurricane center says Ophelia should lose a little strength in the next 48 hours but is expected to remain a hurricane for the next couple of days.Читайте также: Crying Odell Beckham carted off the field in Giants disaster
The current forecast says there is an nearly zero per cent chance of a storm forming in the next 48 hours, and a 20 per chance of formation within the next five days.
"Environmental conditions could become a little more conducive for some development early next week while the system subsequently moves northward over the west-central Atlantic Ocean".
Although the cooler waters around Ireland and the United Kingdom mean the storm won't have the same power that some of the season's earlier storms gained in the Caribbean, the unusual trajectory could lead to one of the worst storms Ireland has seen in many years.
