Forecasters say Hurricane Ophelia is strengthening over the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

Tropical storm Ophelia strengthened to the status of a Category 1 hurricane Wednesday and is now heading toward the coast of Ireland.

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.

Unlike most Atlantic storms, Ophelia is headed from west to east rather than in the opposite direction; with its centre some 785 miles southeast of the Azores, it is expected to pass by Portugal and Spain over the weekend before arriving in these parts early next week.

A tropical storm called Ophelia, expected to become Hurricane Ophelia on Thursday, is headed upwards from the Atlantic and could hit the United Kingdom by early next week. It is possible that this has happened since 1893, but we didn't have the technology to see it. He says a combination of slightly warmer than normal water and weak upper level winds helped make that hurricane streak. That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms.

Analyses like Moses' take place after each hurricane season and can lead to previously unnamed storms to be added, according to The Weather Channel.

The storm is now moving to the east at 3 miles per hour (6 kph), and no coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

The hurricane center's five-day forecast, which can change, has Ophelia heading toward the British Isles by Monday.

A slow northeast drift is expected Wednesday night and Thursday, followed by an acceleration to the east / northeast.

This would tie the record for the most consecutive Atlantic named storms to reach hurricane strength.
