Hurricane Force Storm to affect westbound North Atlantic Shipping
NOAA OPC Surface Analysis
A developing 1017 mb off the US East Coast will move northeast and deepen rapidly over the next 48-72 hours with winds reaching storm to hurricane force within the next 36-48 hours then deepening to 936 mb in 72 Hours! Again we will likely see westbound shipping delays for vessels westbound to the US East Coast.
