The storm tied a record for the most consecutive storms to reach hurricane force, meteorologist Philip Klotzbach of Colorado State University said.

A hurricane brewing over the Atlantic threatens to bring strong winds on Monday - and a mini-heatwave.

Tropical Storm Ophelia has gained strength in the Atlantic and yesterday became a hurricane, the National Hurricane Center reported.

While Ophelia is now a risky storm, by the time it lands, the high winds should have subsided.

The system has maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour and is moving northeast at 3 miles per hour as of the 5 a.m. advisory, according to the National Hurricane Center.

According to Magaya, the requirement for one to sign Form 24A does not apply in the context of the election at hand. The decision was held up as an opportunity to deepen Kenyan democracy.

However, Ophelia will have weakened into a post-tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the UK.

Warm air from Spain, where Ophelia is heading before turning north, could bring temperatures of up to 25C.

"Temperature wise we could see mid 20s mainly across southern United Kingdom on Monday so there should be some quite decent weather", the Met Office said.

A hurricane is headed for the United Kingdom - and it's due to hit on the 30-year anniversary of the 1987 Great Storm.

A higher degree of winds are expected, as well as unseasonably warm weather.
