TS Ophelia Moving North

From our good buddy Steve Donahue over at www.anguilla-weather.com:

This morning it appears that the forecast track of Ophelia will take it well north (200 + miles) of Anguilla, and forecast also calls for the storm to weaken. But as with Maria, we need to watch the track for another day or so. Ophelia passed about 50 miles south of ocean buoy #41041 several hours ago with winds of 60 mph, gust to 78 mph – and with sea swells of 17 ft., wave heights of 26 feet. Tomorrow morning, she will pass 50 or so miles north of buoy #41043 which should tell us what – if any – weather/waves we could expect when it passes north of us (as most of the wind/wave/rain action is north of center – little activity south of center). Right now, I think all we should expect is some moderately rough seas from the ENE.
