Tropical Storm Ophelia heads west in Atlantic

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Tropical Storm Ophelia continues to get better organized in the east-central Atlantic Ocean on Wednesday.

The latest model guidance brings the system near the Lesser Antilles over the weekend.

It is too early to tell if the storm will re-curve into the open water or make more of an approach toward the U.S. coastline.

Tropical Storm Ophelia has winds speed of 45 mph and isn't expected to strengthen much as it continues on a track over the Lesser Antilles and then on to Puerto Rico.
