Ophelia was no threat to the US but could move near the Azores by the weekend.

Ophelia is now located about 785 miles southwest of the Azores, a group of autonomous Portuguese islands in the North Atlantic.

Ophelia strengthened into a hurricane Wednesday afternoon.

Forecasters at the Miami center say Ophelia should gain muscle over the next 48 hours en route to becoming a hurricane sometime Thursday.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said at 5 p.m. Tuesday that Ophelia had top sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph). If Ophelia is able to reach hurricane status it will be the 10th consecutive named storm to become a hurricane.

Moses later tweeted that if separated, there would be a tropical storm, then a separate hurricane, which would make the 10-straight-hurricane record invalid.

The hurricane season officially, at least on paper, ends on November 30.

Ophelia is the strongest storm to develop so far east in the Atlantic since 2009, tweeted Klotzbach,.

The storm is centered about 790 miles (1,270 kilometers) west-southwest of the Azores and is moving southeast near 3 mph (6 kph).

The Weather Network forecast that Ophelia will merge with another system as it approaches the United Kingdom and Ireland before veering east.

"If I only had conventional satellite imagery, I would definitely estimate that Ophelia was a hurricane", NHC forecaster Lixion Avila said.

This could bring a blast of high winds to the Emerald Isle, particularly the western half of Ireland early next week.
