Hur­ri­cane sea­son not over yet as Trop­i­cal Storm Se­bastien forms

Orlando Sentinel - - LOCAL & STATE - By Joe Mario Ped­er­sen

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.
