Ophelia, which is not a threat to the USA, could affect the Azores, Portugal and Ireland.

As of the 5 p.m. forecast, Ophelia was 760 miles southwest of the Azores with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

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

Ophelia is likely to be the 10th straight Atlantic named storm to become a hurricane.

Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic season. This means the storm isn't moving from east to west, like most Atlantic hurricanes.

Ophelia, located almost 800 miles southwest of the Azores, has maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and was moving southeast at 6 mph, the hurricane center said. This has not happened in 124 years, or since 1893.

This season has already been above average in all three categories, named storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes.

The current forecast has Ophelia becoming subtropical before it reaches the Iberian Peninsula.

Tropical storm: A tropical cyclone that has wind speeds of between 39 miles per hour and 73 miles per hour.

Ophelia is forecast to drift slowly east for the next day or so before stronger upper-level winds arrive later this week and accelerate it toward the east-northeast just south of the Azores.

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