Central pressure within these several cores has dropped to 960-970 mbar. Cyclone begins its weakening trend tonight and continues towards the western Europe in the coming days.

Satellite imagery this evening is quite impressive, revealing a very large core of the cyclone with several embedded secondary cyclones. Frontal boundaries expand across the wide area to the north into S Greenland and to the ESE towards Iceland. A violent windstorm has developed around its southern cores.
