Hurricane Lorenzo is a major hurricane with 125 mph winds and a prominent eye

"Lorenzo is now an extremely powerful category 5 hurricane".

The Hurricane is now in the south Atlantic Ocean and is forecasted to hit Irish shores between 8pm on Wednesday and 8am on Thursday.

According to the National Hurricane Center Dorian is forecasted to strike the U.S.as a Category 4 storm. A Hurricane warning is in impact for much of the northwestern Bahamas as it gets struck with 175 miles per hour winds.

Met Éireann have stated that they're now tracking the development of Hurricane Lorenzo amid concerns that it might reach Ireland later this week.

Far from land in the central tropical Atlantic, Category 4 Hurricane Lorenzo gained new fury Thursday afternoon. The risk of rip currents will be high there.

Met Office Meteorologist Alex Burkhill said: 'There's a lot of uncertainty about where the hurricane will hit - it could either go over Iceland or hit France.

For the bargain price of $6.49 Canadian dollars, that converts to $4.87 in USA dollars, you can try one for yourself. A lot of these customers were those more likely to shop at places like Trader Joe's , Whole Foods and Panera Bread.

"Today it turns NE and while charts up to yesterday had it tracking more towards Iceland, the latest charts show it heading directly towards Ireland, reaching us on Thursday night". The GFS and EURO spaghetti models are showing this pattern. Each of the past four Atlantic hurricane seasons has featured at least one Category 5 - if not more.

Meteorologist at Colorado State University Philip Klotzbach wrote on Twitter: "This is the most on record for the Western Hemisphere between August 21 - September 23, breaking the old record of 15 named storms set in 1984 and 2002". Ocean water temperatures within the hall swept over by Lorenzo are up to a couple levels hotter than their former common baseline, making the decrease ambiance replete with gasoline to spin up a beastly storm.

Lorenzo quickly grew in strength earlier this week after exiting the African coast and heading into the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Met Office Meteorologist Alex Burkhill said: 'Lorenzo will likely hit at the end of the week, it won't be a hurricane by the time it hits the United Kingdom but if it does hit, it will be very wet and windy and will likely hit the west'.

The weather system is located 140miles south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico and is expected to bring torrential rains to southwestern Mexico.
