Mildly interesting to get a name-check in the NHC commentary: 'Residents
in Ireland and the United Kingdom should monitor the progress of Ophelia
for the next several days.' Presumably that doesn't happen too often?

I also note the terminology in the NHC discussion: 'Ophelia is expected
to transition to a hurricane-force post-tropical cyclone by Monday when
it moves near Ireland and the UK.'






That NHC discussion made me find out about "baroclinic low", this page
is compact and just about understandable to the techncal but otherwise
layman meterorologically speaking
