Tropical Depression #17 Forms over Eastern Atlantic

Tropical Depression #17 Forms over Eastern Atlantic

Hurricane forecasters tracking a weather system in the Atlantic stated it has strengthened into Tropical Storm Ophelia Monday (Oct. 9) morning.

Maximum sustained winds with this system are 40 miles per hour with higher gusts and is moving to the North-northeast at 5 miles per hour.

"Nate is expected to continue tracking northeastward, moving into eastern portions of the OH valley states by Monday morning and into the northeast Monday evening as a post-tropical cyclone", the center said. Ophelia could become a hurricane, according to a Monday forecast from the National Hurricane Center.

We should see it downgraded even further to a Post-Tropical Cyclone by tonight or tomorrow, but as far as we're concerned we really didn't see any rain from Nate, at least not here in the Twin Cities.

Our 15th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season has formed in the open Atlantic.

Upper-level winds will help steer the depression east.

Nate made its first United States landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River in southeast Louisiana on Saturday, with maximum sustained winds near 85 miles per hour, and subsequently made a second landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, shortly after midnight yesterday, as a Category 1 hurricane.

The storm surge from the Mississippi Sound littered Biloxi's main beachfront highway with debris and flooded a casino's lobby and parking structure overnight.

Harvey made U.S. landfall in late August as a Category 4 hurricane.

No storm-related deaths or injuries were immediately reported.

More than 100,000 people were without power in Alabama and MS this weekend. Hurricane season lasts until November 30.
