Tropical Storm Irma forms in Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center has upgraded a system far out in the Atlantic to a tropical storm.

An 8 a.m. update from the NHC reported the storm system became "more organized" overnight. Prior to an 11 a.m. update, the NHC reported Tropical Storm Irma was west of Cape Verde and moving northwest.

ABC News 4 meteorologist Emily Gracey reports Irma is too far out to be of huge concern or threat at this time. There is no immediate threat to land, but the storm is forecast to become a hurricane.
