ORLANDO, Fla. – Tropical Storm Jerry formed in the Atlantic early Wednesday, but current computer models keep it away from Florida.

Jerry is located about 960 miles east of the Leeward Islands, with 45 mph winds. Jerry is moving west-northwest at 13 mph.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

Jerry is expected to become a hurricane in the coming days and take a turn to the north and east, keeping it out to sea.
