An intense storm low over the eastern North Atlantic with storm to hurricane force winds and seas to 14 meters (46 feet) will turn northeast then northward passing just west of Ireland.  A rapidly deepening low will develop over the central North Atlantic in 24-36 hours deepening and moving ENE to near Brest in northwest France within 72 hours.  This will bring storm to hurricane force winds and seas  into the Bay of Biscay and the English Channel approaches.
