Ophelia whirls in the central Atlantic

By  | 

Atlantic Ocean (Accuweather / AP) -- Tropical Storm Ophelia is in the central Atlantic, gradually gaining strength.

Ophelia is currently located around 790 miles west-southwest of the Azores.

This storm will not threaten land for much of the week as it moves generally eastward.

There is some chance Ophelia could affect the Azores late this week or this weekend.

Elsewhere, no new development is expected across the Atlantic basin for the next couple of days.
