Ophelia, Nate and Maria
By  | 

It's a busy day for weather forecasters who are trying to keep an eye on "Ophelia," "Nate" and "Maria."

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Ophelia could bring strong winds and rain to north Florida and south Georgia over the next few days.

The storm has 50 mile-per-hour winds. It is now about 80 miles from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Meterologists say it could strengthen into a hurricane but they're not sure which way it will go.

Meanwhile, forecasters say Tropical Storm Nate has intensified into a hurricane, south of Bermuda. They say the the storm, with its 85-mile-per-hour winds, could pass near or just south of the island by tomorrow but they don't expect it to threaten the U-S.

And, Tropical Storm Maria has again been updated to a hurricane. However, the storm, with its 80 mile-per-hour winds, remains far out in the Atlantic.
