Hurricane Ophelia is moving slowly in the middle of seemingly nowhere, according to the 5 a.m. advisory Thursday from the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

At this time in the hurricane season, conditions usually begin to become unfavorable for storms to develop, but some meteorologists are saying this year is different because of warm temperatures.

However, the worst of the winds are expected to hit the West coast, reaching 150kph and potentially 160kph in the extreme West coast, by Monday night. That would keep the center of the storm south of most of the Azores, but close enough that a tropical storm watch or warning might be issued later today.

Its interaction with colder water and the jet stream means Opehlia will likely lose its tropical characteristics before reaching Ireland and the United Kingdom, becoming a post-tropical (also called extra-tropical) storm.

"While post tropical Ophelia will likely bring some direct impacts from wind and heavy rain to portions of these areas, as well as risky marine conditions, given the forecast uncertainty at these time ranges it is too soon to determine the exact magnitude, timing and location of the impacts".

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean.

Western Britain will also likely be battered by gusts of between 60mph and 70mph.

No other tropical system exists at this time.
