University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy says Ophelia is the 10th straight tropical storm to become a hurricane in an Atlantic season.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Monday.

However, the worst of the winds are expected to hit the West coast, reaching 150kph and potentially 160kph in the extreme West coast, by Monday night.

The storm caused damage estimated at £1billion and claimed 18 lives.

The ball's in your court, May tells European Union leaders
However, she will add that she still believes she can negotiate the best deal possible for the United Kingdom and EU. This stalemate is bad news and makes either no deal or a best-case-scenario bad deal the most likely outcome.

It will be turning increasingly sunny, especially on Sunday and Monday.

Mr Burkhill said cold sea temperatures mean Ophelia will not be strong enough to be categorised as a hurricane when it hits Britain. This set up brings some similarities to Hurricane Debbie way back in 1961 that was one of the most memorable and damaging storms in Irish history, thankfully Ophelia does not appear as ominous. So depending on when the transition occurs, these areas could be impacted by a hurricane or a post-tropical storm, though the hurricane or tropical strom-force winds impacting the region won't care about the official storm designation.

While rare, it is not unprecedented to have post-tropical storms reach the British Isles.

"At the moment, because it's four days away, there are a lot of possibilities as to how this might evolve, we are anxious to keep an eye on it".

Overall, the unsettled weather looks likely to continue into Tuesday due to a separate band of low pressure, and will remain changeable throughout the rest of the week.
