Jerry becomes the tenth named storm of the 2019 season.

The tropical storm is moving west-northwest near 13 mph and is expected to gain forward speed over the next few days. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

“Further strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Jerry is expected to become a hurricane by the time it moves near the northern Leeward Islands,” the National Hurricane Center said.

Sebastian Daily will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Jerry this week as it moves past Florida.
