Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the Atlantic while other weather systems continue to lurk in the area.

According to the National Hurricane Center, at 5:00 p.m. Saturday, the center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 8.6 North, longitude 24.8 West. Kirk is moving toward the west-northwest near 15 miles per hour (24 km/h), and a westward to west-northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight.

The forecast says "shower and thunderstorm activity continues to become better organized near the center of a low pressure system located about 500 miles south of the southern Cabo Verde Islands, and a tropical depression appears to be forming".

Forecasters say the system is likely to dissipate within a day or two. "The low is forecast to move westward and west-northwestward at about 10 miles per hour over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean and by Tuesday or Wednesday, upper-level winds are forecast to strengthen again, likely limiting the development".

Subtropical Storm Leslie's first update at 11 a.m. Sunday. They expect Kirk will track quickly westward over the next few days far from land.

The NHC said in an 5 p.m. advisory Leslie remained a subtropical storm but was expected to be a short-lived cyclone as it was moving west at 3 mph at 40 mph 1145 miles west-southwest of the Azores.

Remnants of Tropical Depression 11.

It is expected to weaken by the end of the week and now poses no threat to Florida.

Tropical Storm Kirk was accelerating westward over the eastern tropical Atlantic as Subtropical Storm Leslie formed Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said. "By then, the system is expected to be moving by the southeastern coast of the United States".

More than a week after Hurricane Florence made landfall in the Carolinas, at least 44 people have died.
