Hurricane Ophelia becomes 10th Atlantic hurricane of 2017 season

Tropical storm Ophelia path track

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ophelia is expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday.

"Maximum sustained winds are near 75 miles per hour [120 km/h] with higher gusts".

Furthermore, some tropical storms and hurricanes could have flown under the radar before 1966, when satellites came into the picture to examine the entire tropical Atlantic Basin. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms. Days later, Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean and Florida and was the strongest observed storm in the Atlantic since Wilma. The most recent was a tropical depression that was previously Hurricane Vince. There were two others, Harvey and Jose, that reached Category 4 strength. It is also expected to make a gradual turn to the northeast starting Thursday night.

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

Football Legend, Hall of Famer YA Tittle Dies, 90
Tittle , who was just two weeks away from his 91st birthday, spent 10 seasons with the 49ers from 1951 through 1960. When Tittle left San Francisco, he went to NY to play for the Giants for the last four seasons of his career.

Even as an ex-hurricane, both the American and European models suggest parts of Ireland, especially near the west coast, could be blasted by hurricane-like conditions on Monday.

Ophelia has set an initial record during a season that has set off five major hurricanes, three of them Category 5 storms as well as 15 named storms.

Tropical Storm Ophelia looked like a hurricane but wasn't one quite yet, the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday morning. "Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles [35 km] from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles [110 km]". Incidentally, all of them have arrived in the months of August or September, except for Hurricane Fran, which swept past the area in October 1973 and Hurricane Alex in January 2016.
