Ophelia is an odd storm in an odd spot, the farthest east (26.6°W) an Atlantic major hurricane has existed on record!

Hurricane Ophelia is one extremely weird storm!

It’s rare for hurricanes to tread these waters.

Update: Ophelia is the farthest east (26.6°W) an Atlantic major hurricane has existed on record.

Hurricane Ophelia is an odd storm. It’s a picture-perfect hurricane with winds around 90 MPH. But that’s not the odd part, of course.

What makes this storm weird is its location. It’s way out in the Atlantic, where it’s usually too cool for hurricanes to develop and much less to survive.

Ophelia is so far off the beaten path that instead of heading for the Americas, the low-pressure system will evolve and threaten Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Red and orange warnings for Monday in Ireland

A status red weather warning has been issued for a number of counties on the western seaboard for Monday.

The remains of Hurricane Ophelia is expected to bring mean wind speeds in excess of 80km/h and gusts of up to 130km/h to counties Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry and Cork.

A status orange warning is in place for the rest of the country, with mean wind speeds of between 65 and 80km/h expected, and gusts of between 110 and 130km/h.

There is still a high degree of uncertainty regarding the exact track and evolution of Hurricane Ophelia.

Nothing about Ophelia is unprecedented or record-breaking, but it’s an odd storm in an odd spot.
