Ophelia is moving slowly northeast through the Atlantic at 3mph.

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.

Ophelia has been classed as a hurricane by the US National Hurricane Centre.

Ahead of the heavy wind and rain Hurricane Ophelia will bring with it, temperatures are set to reach 20 degrees over the weekend.

Ophelia is on track to reach the United Kingdom nearly 30 years to the day of the Great Storm of 1987, which killed 22 people across Britain, France and the Channel Islands.

Tropical storm force winds will hit Ireland and the south-west coast of Britain on Monday morning at 1am BST, reaching the northern-most tip of Scotland by 1pm.


Ophelia is also expected to hit the United Kingdom next week.

The storm caused damage estimated at £1billion and claimed 18 lives.

But he added: "It's definitely something that we are keeping an eye on, for the possibility of some disruptive weather early next week".

Overall, the unsettled weather looks likely to continue into Tuesday due to a separate band of low pressure, and will remain changeable throughout the rest of the week.

The forecast for the start of next week isn't looking good with Met Eireann saying it will be stormy on Monday.
