Hurricane Ophelia remains nearly stationary over the Gulf Stream, about 70 mile east-northeast of Cape Canaveral, FL.
Sustained winds are now up to 75 mph and the central pressure is down to 985 mb. Ophelia is expected to wander off the southeast coast for the next several days and could eventually pose a threat to the U.S. Interests anywhere in the Southeast should pay close attention to the storm. The models continue to be all over the board for track, but I see no reason to not expect further gradual intensification.
Once we see a solid movement in the storm, we should better be able to forecast the track.
