Weather experts in the US are predicting that a category-four cyclone could be on its way to Ireland.

After Storm Ophelia ravaged across Ireland in October 2017, killing three people, experts in the US are predicting that this Fall could bring an even stronger storm across the North Atlantic.

The Joint Cyclone Center, based in Florida, believes that their dramatic satellite images show a tropical cyclone forming and on its way to Ireland, claiming that it is set to develop over the next 14 days. It is even expected to reach a category-four storm, just one step below the strongest category five.

In comparison to this, the post-tropical storm, Storm Ophelia, was a category three.

"Over the next 14 days, we do not normally see the weird tropical cyclones as strong as #Ophelia form in this part of the Northern Atlantic with a central pressure of 943mb, as the same of the equivalent in Category 4 hurricanes,” they wrote in a tweet.

The Irish weather service Met Éireann does not give long-range forecasts so far in advance and so they can not confirm whether the Florida organization was accurate.

On the upside, they are predicting a week of mostly dry and warm weather in Ireland so we’d probably be best to make the most of it, just in case!
