Meanwhile, a stormy low pressure system in the Eastern Atlantic is developing beyond yesterday’s suggestive storminess, and many of the conditions are good for the formation of a strong storm, but these conditions are expected to deteriorate over the next two days, thus the chance of this disturbance becoming a named storm in the near future are about one in three.
