JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tropical Storm Sebastien has formed in the open Atlantic Ocean but the good news is that it poses no threat to us here at home or to land. 

The storm will pass east of us by 1,200 miles and as it does so it could potentially become a hurricane.

Tropical Storm Sebastien is the latest tropical storm to form in a hurricane season since 2013, which was Tropical Storm Melissa forming on November 18th, 2013.

Hurricane Season ends Nov. 30.
