University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy says Ophelia is the 10th straight tropical storm to become a hurricane in an Atlantic season.

The Category 1 storm now poses no threat to land, forecasters said, and no watches or warnings have been issued.

The system has maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour and is moving northeast at 3 miles per hour as of the 5 a.m. advisory, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Ireland is set to be faced with 120km/h winds early next week as Hurricane Ophelia makes its way towards us.

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.

Forecaster Eleanor Bell, of The Weather Channel, said: "Latest model guidance is indicating Ophelia will move in from the Azores across the Biscay area around Sunday and move on towards Britain early next week".

For the last time, so many storms had become hurricanes in 1893.

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. This should take the system just south and east of the Azores.
