Tropical Storm Ophelia is expected to strengthen to a hurricane as it spins far out over the Atlantic.
"I am not quite sure what to make of it", Dr Klotzbach told Bloomberg.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm was located Thursday about 715 miles (1,145 kilometers) southwest of the Azores. It is expected to follow in that general direction till Thursday and pick up speed by the beginning of Friday.
Ophelia is a Category 1 hurricane with 75 miles per hour winds. Forecasters say slight strengthening is possible over the next couple of days.
Joel Embiid signs five-year max extension with Philadelphia 76ers
Even with his injury history, it's nearly certain somebody would try to make the Sixers stay on the hook for the whole bit. Embiid's Sixers teammates have his back - they love the deal, as they told Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia .
Hurricane season runs through the end of November in the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. "I thought that storm was dead and buried in the central Atlantic".
It is unlikely Ophelia makes a direct hit on the Azores, but, at a minimum, some outer rain bands and gusty winds could impact eastern portions of the Portuguese archipelago this weekend. All of those occurred in August or September, except for Hurricane Fran in October 1973 and Hurricane Alex in January 2016, which made landfall shortly after weakening to a tropical storm. The storm may still be capable of producing powerful winds, on the order of 60 to 80 miles per hour, when it makes its closest approach to Ireland and the United Kingdom, which it's forecast to do on Monday.
It's important to note that weather records are based on what we're able to record.
This could bring a blast of high winds to the Emerald Isle, particularly the western half of Ireland early next week.
