Yowbarb Note: Hurricane KATE weakened to a Tropical Storm a couple of days ago and now can be seen on the north Atlantic satellite as a large circulation. I added an orange arrow to the screen capture. First posting the link to the North Atlantic - Visible Loop, below that an article...At least 1,000 homes are without power from Storm Abigail and remnants of KATE on the way to the UK.

Storm Abigail: It’s not over yet…remnants of Hurricane Kate on their way

13 November 2015 by Stephen Walsh

The stormy weather is showing no signs of abating this week,  with forecasters predicting the remnants of a hurricane will arrive on UK shores this weekend.

Hot on the heels of Storm Abigail is the tail-end of Hurricane Kate, which is expected to arrive at these shores this weekend.

The severe weather will work its way in from the north Atlantic, by which point it will have shed its tropical characteristics.

Winds and gusts of up to 55mph are predicted along the Scottish and Irish coasts.

The rain is not believed to be heavy enough to cause widespread flooding but winds are expected to interfere with both air and road travel.

Meanwhile, schools and roads have been closed and hundreds of homes have been hit by power cuts after Storm Abigail reached its peak in the Northern Isles and west coast of Scotland last night.

Tropical Storm Ophelia to become HURRICANE on path to UK: 'Wet and windy' weather forecast

TROPICAL STORM OPHELIA will strengthen into a hurricane before reaching the UK next week, with its current path on course for Portugal.

By REISS SMITH
12:04, Wed, Oct 11, 2017

Ophelia is racing across the Atlantic at 6mph and is forecast to reach hurricane strength tomorrow.
It currently has maximum sustained winds of 50mph, but will reach at least 74mph as it approaches western Europe.

The NOAA National Hurricane Center’s latest storm path shows Ophelia reaching the coast of Portugal by late Sunday night as a post-tropical cyclone with hurricane-strength winds.

Ophelia would become only the third tropical cyclone to hit the west coast of Portugal or Spain since records began, following a storm in October 1842 and Hurricane Vince (as a tropical depression) in October 2005.

After it has hit Portugal, the remnants of Ophelia could bring strong winds to the UK.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: "Having been a tropical system close to the point that it reaches the UK, the storm will have a lot of energy and there could be wet and windy weather on Monday".

With Ophelia still quite a way out in the Atlantic, there is still a lot of uncertainty about its exact path. The Met Office will release any necessary weather warnings later in the week.

An 18Z Tuesday run of the GFS model shows the storm hitting the south west coast at around midnight on Tuesday October 17.

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

Ophelia is currently located about 785 miles southwest of the Azores, a group of autonomous Portuguese islands in the North Atlantic.

Dramatic satellite footage shows how Hurricane Ophelia is heading straight for Britain bringing fierce winds and rain

Dramatic satellite footage shows how Hurricane Ophelia is set to make a direct hit on the UK next week.

A terrifying video shows how Ophelia, the 10th consecutive Atlantic named storm to become a hurricane in 2017, will travel 'very quickly' northwards on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


Currently drifting around the Atlantic Ocean, the moving weather map shows it could hit as soon as just after the weekend.

It will move past Portugal and towards Britain in the next few days, with the latest update predicting the storm will reach Britain on Monday.

It is unlikely it will still be a 'hurricane' at that stage having left tropical waters behind, forecasters say.

But the speed of movement shown in the footage demonstrates it will it will still hold a lot of rain and wind, experts have said.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
700 PM EST Sun Nov 5 2017

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a well-defined low
pressure system located about 850 miles east-southeast of Bermuda
continues to become better organized.  Conditions are currently
favorable for additional development, and a tropical or subtropical
depression could form during the next day or two as the system moves
north-northeastward through the open Atlantic.  Conditions are
expected to become less conducive for development in the middle part
of next week, when the system is expected to reach colder water and
merge with a cold front.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
