Ophelia had winds of 70 miles per hour and could "become a hurricane at any time today or tomorrow", the hurricane center said. Its core was located about 785 miles (1,265 kilometers) southwest of the Azores and it was moving to the southeast at 6 mph (9 kph).

The Weather Network forecast that Ophelia will merge with another system as it approaches the United Kingdom and Ireland before veering east.

No threats to land are reported at this time.

As of 5 a.m. EDT, Ophelia, which isn't now a threat to any land, was centered about 785 miles (1,265 kilometers) southwest of the Azores and moving southeast near 6 mph (9 kph).
