Text forecast for high seas

The production of sea forecasts covering areas from 56° north latitude to the Arctic ice edge was changed the 7th of January. German Bight and Dogger are no longer part of the production. The wave forecasts are now an integrated part of the text for each forecast area. Warnings are expanded to cover the whole area of responsibility.
