Powerful Hurricane Ophelia heads toward Ireland

This is a rare event. From 1851-2010, a mere 10 hurricanes have come within 200 miles of Ireland
Powerful Hurricane Ophelia heads toward Ireland

Record-setting Ophelia, a Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 185 kilometers per hour (115 mph), was passing south of the Azores on Saturday on its path toward Ireland.

Ophelia will have big impacts for the British Isles beginning Monday, including hurricane-force winds forecast for Ireland.

The fast-moving storm intensified Saturday.

"The odd part about Ophelia is seeing this intensification take place in what's normally a much cooler region of the Atlantic Ocean," CNN Meteorologist Allison Chinchar said.

...Ophelia is the farthest east that a major hurricane has ever been in the Atlantic. The previous record was held by Frances in 1980, according to CNN Meteorologist Haley Brink.

The storm is the sixth major hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic basin hurricane season and the 10th consecutive named storm in the Atlantic to become a hurricane. The latter milestone ties a record that has occurred three times, most recently in 1893, more than a century ago.

Quite a rare occurrance for England.

Quote:
The UK is set to experience the tail end of a category three hurricane with high temperatures and wind forecast.

As a result of Hurricane Ophelia, parts of England could see temperatures reach 25C (77F) on Sunday beating the 15C (59F) average for mid-October.

On Monday some areas of the UK will be hit with winds of up to 80mph (128km/h).
The hurricane will be a storm when it hits the UK, exactly 30 years after the Great Storm of 1987 killed 18 people.
An unreal temp for England in October.

Where I live among residents who have been here 30 years or more, we discuss the changes that are ongoing. I brought up the fall color with several longtime residents. When I moved here, and up until about 10 years ago, fall color in this part of Colorado was 95 percent yellow.

Now, it's a rainbow, oranges and reds very common, shades of purple, leaves still on trees in mid-October, fall colors are really different as we all agreed. Then, fireflies have been seen for the first time that anyone remembers, two summers running now.

Globally and locally, effects from the incremental rise in temps , or more accurately, the weather generated by an atmosphere able to hold more heat energy, become more pronounced and harder to ignore.

The summer and autumn has been so warm in Ohio that the leaves went from green to brown. Little fall colors are visible this year.

Maximum sustained winds now 85 MPH.

Hurricane Debbie in 1961 had gusts up to 113 MPH. Possible that Ophelia may equal that.
