Kirk returns as tropical storm, other disturbances in Atlantic

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina Former Tropical Storm Kirk could make a comeback
Kristine Garrett | 27 September, 2018, 15:23

Since then, Kirk's leftovers have generally stuck together as they have continued to truck westward toward the Caribbean.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for...

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85km/h), with tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 140 miles (220 km) to the east and north of the centre, and 120 miles (190 km) to the southeast of the centre.

Gradual weakening is anticipated during the next couple of days, but Kirk is forecast to move across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea as a tropical storm.

The tropical wave associated with the remnants of Tropical Depression Kirk has regenerated into Tropical Storm Kirk. Movement was towards the west near 18 miles per hour (30 km/h).

Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Agency Director Mona Barnes said the agency has been monitoring the storm. However, sustained winds of between 25 and 35 miles per hour with higher gusts are expected to spread across the island from tonight and persisting into tomorrow.

Finally, Post-Tropical Cyclone Leslie, in the central Atlantic a few hundred miles southwest of Portugal's Azores Islands, has a 90 percent chance of becoming organized again over the next five days.

But the long-term forecast for Kirk is not optimistic for a lengthy life.

Interests elsewhere in the central and northern Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Kirk as additional warnings or watches could be issued later today.

Wind: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or unsafe. Rainfall totals from four to six inches, with isolated totals up to 10 inches, are possible through Friday from Barbados and St. Lucia northward across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.
