Re: Tropical Storm Ophelia Forms in Central Atlantic

At present, NHC does not call for the storm to strengthen above Tropical Storm strength.

Five day forecast models show no sign of ridging to the storm's north, and the begin of the re-curvature toward the end of the forecast period. Ophelia is unlikely to affect the US mainland, though it is not impossible.
