North Atlantic Storm

A rapidly deepening low over the western North Atlantic is forecast to produce winds of 50 to 70 knots within 360 NM west of the center during the next 24-48 hours building significant wave heights to over 40 feet (12 meters).

The area of highest winds and seas will be along the main shipping routes so this will likely effect some arrival times for ships transiting from Northern Europe to the US East Coast.
