The storm in the cntrl. N Atlantic marked as “HENRI” is in fact not HENRI, but rathen an unnamed storm. We are very sorry for the incorrect information.
The scandinavian high-pressure area is starting to become much weaker, making it possible for low-pressure areas to move further towards the east again. At the edge of the H, storm “LEO” has formed, while the former tropical storm, now storm “HENRI” is moving towards Europe and is currently located over the central north Atlantic.
