Sebastien, a relative rarity in that it’s a November tropical storm, is no threat to land.

“Some slight strengthening is possible over the next day or so,” the hurricane center’s advisory said. “Sebastien is expected to become absorbed by a cold front in a couple of days.”

Sebastien is not expected to have any influence on South Florida’s weather, which remains on the cool side after weeks of above average hot temperatures.

The storm is 275 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands, which are located in the area where the Atlantic Ocean meets the northeastern Caribbean Sea.
