Even as hurricane season winds down, a new tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic Ocean.
Tropical Storm Sebastien developed Tuesday morning, but it is expected to remain over open water.
As of 11 a.m., the system was located about 275 miles north east of the Leeward Islands, moving north-northwest at 8 mph.
It was packing maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.
A turn to the north is expected on Wednesday, followed by a turn to the northeast and an increase in forward speed Wednesday night.
Hurricane season officially ends on Nov. 30.
