Hurricane Gaston, which is sweeping across the Atlantic, is now being classed as one that's 'major' by forecasters.
The National Hurricane Centre say it has surged to a Category Three storm, and is the first one of its kind of the Atlantic season.
It has been formed off the coast of Florida over the last few days and it is thought it could be heading towards Ireland and the UK.
Hurricane Gaston is the latest hurricane to develop in the Atlantic and has reached its peak with gusts up to 85-90mph, although this system is expected to slowly weaken and track north-westwards.
It will eventually head north then north-eastwards towards Ireland as a low pressure system, potentially disrupting our weather next week, although confidence is very low on its exact track.
