Scotland's weather: Hurricane Ophelia to blast coastal areas

Scotland's weather: Hurricane Ophelia to blast coastal areas

But are people right to be anxious?

On average, according to the National Hurricane Center, one hurricane forms in October.

Ophelia strengthened into a hurricane Wednesday evening, becoming the tenth hurricane in a row of the 2017 season.

Hurricane Ophelia is on route, with a trajectory to hit Ireland and most of the UK.

The element set a record for the most successive storms that have reached the height of a hurricane, a meteorologist at Colorado State University said.

Met Office forecaster Alex Burkhill said: "Ophelia became a hurricane overnight and the forecast track takes it eastwards towards Iberia for the weekend".

Ophelia is on track to reach the United Kingdom nearly 30 years to the day of the Great Storm of 1987, which killed 22 people across Britain, France and the Channel Islands.

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

The tail of the hurricane is predicted to whip the Irealnd and the west coast of Scotland.

"But then it will continue its way towards the British Isles, probably reaching us very early next week".

Western Britain will also likely be battered by gusts of between 60mph and 70mph.
