Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical storm Kirk is forecast to strike Barbados at about ...

Kirk does not pose a threat to the USA over the next eight days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts. The storm moving west near 5 mph towards the Windward Islands -about 500 miles away - and is expected to remain a tropical depression through Sunday afternoon. At that time, the system will be moving westward and then northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, according to the center. "Some strengthening is expected through Sunday with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday", the NHC stated in its 11a.m. public advisory. As it gets closer to the Lesser Antilles, high wind shear will most likely tear this apart by Sunday night.

A wave rolling off the African coast and 500 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands is growing, however, the center said in its 8 a.m. advisory.

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


Forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk is continuing to move west across the eastern Atlantic but does not now pose any threat to land.

Formation chances are at 60 percent over the next 48 hours and at 70 percent through the next five days for the system approaching the Azores.

NHC forecasts keep it at tropical storm strength as it crosses the Atlantic over the next week. The season runs through November 30.
