Ophelia becomes remarkable 10th hurricane of season

Tropical Storm Ophelia to become HURRICANE on path to UK: 'Wet and windy' weather forecast

Before we dive into the numbers, lets go over some terminology.

Ophelia would become only the third tropical cyclone to hit the west coast of Portugal or Spain since records began, following a storm in October 1842 and Hurricane Vince (as a tropical depression) in October 2005.

Ophelia is a Category 1 hurricane with 75 miles per hour winds. If Ophelia is able to reach hurricane status it will be the 10th consecutive named storm to become a hurricane. The NHC predicted there would be 14-19 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes, and 2-5 major hurricanes. September - when the season historically peaks - has been three and a half times busier than the last three decades.

The 2017 hurricane season was forecast by NOAA, and many other forecast products to be the busiest we have seen since 2010. ACE is the approximate wind energy generated by tropical systems and is used to compare storms and previous seasons.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecaster Stewart noted on October 10 at 1:44 p.m. EDT "Convective banding has continued to become better defined since the previous advisory, and an eye-like feature has developed in the center of the convection".

The CSRA has been impacted by two different tropical systems so far this year. Through the coming days the storm will move toward the northeast. "Bush field recorded 4.10" of rain that day, which is 0.88" more than our average rainfall total for the entire month of September.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 miles per hour (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
