A very powerful storm is forming off the coast of eastern United States today and is expected to move across the Atlantic toward Europe over the next couple of days. NWS Ocean Prediction Center describes the storm as extremely dangerous.

Official OPC forecast calls for winds up to 128 km/h (80 mph) and significant waves to 15 m (50 feet) within the next 48 hours, the center said 11:00 UTC today.

The storm was 1005 hPa during the early morning UTC hours of January 30, 2017, but it is expected to drop to 957 hPa over the next 72 hours.

The storm will be moving across the Atlantic over the next 5 days.

GWES probabilistic guidance calls for first significant waves to reach Portugal and Spain on February 2.
