Storm history[]

Farahuk

The ridge that stalled Dan migrated eastward. Meanwhile a tropical wave crossed Poland and Germany, reaching the Netherlands on July 15. That evening, while on North Sea near Haag, the wave became Tropical Depression Six. After making landfall on July 16 at Folkestone, United Kingdom, the ridge coming from the west moved the depression back to sea south of England. The depression became Tropical Storm Farahuk on the Strait of Calais, then Hurricane Farahuk near Norwich. The hurricane intensified further, peaking as a strong Category 4 on July 19, while near Lindesnes of Norway. The hurricane yet neared Jylland as Category 3, before the ridge went over the North Sea and Farahuk reintensified into Category 4 before making landfall near Aberdeen, United Kingdom. The system turned westward, hitting yet near Larne, Ireland as a tropical storm, before dissipating northwest of Ireland on July 23.
