The worse now seems over, and brightening up here, with the storm tracking towards Lisbon where it will die out over land. Its worth keeping an eye on flights, as those especially from Lisbon, will be affected into tomorrow. The Sea is expected to become much rougher over the next few hours as the tide also comes in.
