Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I guess Scotland needs a hurricane

But it will hit Ireland first

Ophelia is expected to transition to a hurricane-force post-tropical cyclone by Monday when it moves near Ireland and the United Kingdom.  While post-tropical Ophelia will likely bring some direct impacts from wind and heavy rain to portions of these areas, as well as dangerous marine conditions, given the forecast uncertainty at these time ranges it is too soon to determine the exact magnitude, timing and location of the impacts.  Residents in Ireland and the United Kingdom should monitor the progress of Ophelia for the next several days.

"Post-tropical", I have to look up that. o! It's like a "subsidiarity," like, not wholly-owned by the weather wut brung it.

A post-tropical cyclone is a former tropical cyclone.
