Sean Forms: No Threat to U.S.

The eighteenth named storm of the season, Sub Tropical Storm Sean has formed well off the US coastline.

At 5:00 am Tuesday, Sean was located at 27.2 N, 69.4 W, or about 720 miles off the North Carolina coastline. The storm had sustained winds of 45 mph and was stationary.

A strong cold front moving off the east coast on Thursday will turn Sean to the northeast and push the storm well out to sea by late week. The storm will have no impact on eastern Carolina.

A sub-tropical storm is more of a hybrid type storm with both tropical and non-tropical characteristics. Sub tropical storms generally have a wider wind field without a tight center of circulation.

      Many boaters and surfers on the Outer Banks would disagree. This is in a good spot to keep it rough out there for a few days.

        It will put on some ways only for about 2 or 3 days. When it's already November, there is really no need to worry about a hurricane anymore. A snowstorm would be just as likely, if not more likely than a hurricane this time of the year.

    If its no threat to the US, then we need no headlined story about it.

      Where exactly are the non-headline stories?
