The hurricane season has seen a series of strong, destructive storms that have wreaked havoc across the Caribbean as well as in the USA states of Texas and Florida.

A STORM hurtling towards Scotland across the Atlantic has been upgraded to a hurricane, prompting concern among Brits.

Ophelia may not threaten the USA - but it could move near the Azores islands, and the National Hurricane Center on Thursday cautioned those in the islands to keep an eye on the storm.

The storm will no longer be hurricane strength by the time it hits Britain What is the latest United Kingdom weather forecast?

Met Éireann said they are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Ophelia.

Hurricane-force winds extend out 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend out 70 miles.

The fact that 10 consecutive storms have reached hurricane status speaks to the unrelenting nature of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

The last time so many named storms in a row became hurricanes was in 1893, he said.

Ophelia will get caught in the "westerlies", the jet-stream-powered flow that moves mid-latitude weather from west to east, over the weekend as it passes Portugal and Spain and heads towards Ireland.

Hurricane Ophelia is set to batter Britain over the weekend Will Hurricane Ophelia hit Britain? But that will not have a significant impact on its overall strength as it nears Europe, as Ophelia is expected to have winds of up to 75 miles per hour.

The compact weather system which will arrive on Monday afternoon and will continue into the early hours of Tuesday morning, is the first notable storm of the year to reach Irish shores.
