Florence regroups as Tropical Storm Kirk; slim chance for Carolina repeat

BWS Tropical Depression Eleven September 2018

ORIGINAL STORY: Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move west through the Atlantic, and forecasters continue to predict it may be in the Caribbean by Thursday morning. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect from that storm, which packs top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.

The next disturbance or depression upgraded to a tropical storm will be named Kirk followed by Leslie.

The storm will move toward the west-northwest through early next week and is not a threat to Florida.

During a weather update Sunday morning, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) described Kirk as well as another weather system called Tropical Depression 11 as being of "immediate concern to the British Virgin Islands". While Leslie may not last that long, some form of storm will be out in this area of the Atlantic over the next week.

Tropical Storm Kirk has formed off the coast of Sierra Leone and will trek westward over the next week.

The storm is located about 465 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and now doesn't pose a threat to land, according to the latest advisory. Wind shear continues to basically throw up a shield over the islands, and every storm that's gone into this region has dissipated fairly quickly. "Some slight strengthening is possible, but Leslie is forecast to become absorbed by a larger non-tropical low by the middle of the week", according to the NHC. However, there is a possibility that Kirk will not be able to maintain tropical organization before approaching the Islands. It has maximum sustained winds of 25 miles per hour and is moving west at 12 miles per hour. Its maximum sustained winds were at 40 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The NHC added that it is slated to hit the southeastern coast of the U.S.by September 25 and September 26. This is due to a cold front moving through and stalling just to the south of us.
