Hurricane Ophelia is making its way towards Ireland.

A stronger Hurricane Ophelia continued tracking northeastward on Thursday morning, far from the U.S.

According to JLT Re's Hurricane Activity report, as of 8am Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) today (13 October) Ophelia had strengthened to a Cat 2 Hurricane, with peak wind speeds of 104 miles per hour.

Hurricane Ophelia, the latest storm to form in a record 10 consecutive hurricanes this season, is forecast to hit Ireland in what could be the country's strongest storm since 1961, Bloomberg reports.

Hurricane Ophelia is meandering far out at sea in the eastern Atlantic, southwest of the Azores.

Met Office and Channel 5 forecaster Chris Page said Hurricane Ophelia has been upgraded to a Category 2 hurricane. Its top sustained winds were clocked at 90 miles per hour (150 kph) and the storm is moving to the north-northeast at 2 miles per hour (4 kph). That's a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms.

By the time Ophelia reaches Derry and other parts of the North it will be what experts describe as an ex-hurricane however wind speeds are still expected to be high - 80mph in some places.

The Met Office has said the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will hit the United Kingdom on Monday. The storm's center is forecast to continue moving east-northeast, passing near or to the southeast of the southeastern Azores Saturday and Saturday night, with only slight weakening expected over the next two days. The hurricane does not now pose a threat to any land.

"Maximum sustained winds are near 100 miles per hour (155 km/h) with higher gusts - a category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale".
