Hurricane season not over yet as Tropical Storm Sebastien forms
Tropical Storm Sebastien formed Tuesday morning 275 miles away from the Leeward Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Sebastien spun into organization quickly over the last 24 hours as the 19th named storm of the 2019 hurricane season.
It has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph while moving at 12 mph northwest, said NHC hurricane specialist Andrew Latto. Sebastien’s tropicalstorm-force winds can be felt about 105 miles from its core, Latto said.
Models show Sebastien making a slight northeastern turn toward as it picks up speed Wednesday night and is not expected to move toward America, Latto said.
Sebastien is not predict a long future as its path will soon collide with a cold front, which is expected to absorb the storm and end any chance of further development, Latto said.
Hurricane season ends on Dec. 1.
