Tropical Storm Kirk gaining speed in Atlantic

Subtropical storm Leslie formed on Sunday.

As for Tropical Depression Kirk, the hurricane center said it could weaken further as it progresses across the Atlantic. Kirk was barely hanging on as a tropical storm with only 40 miles per hour winds thanks to lots of African dust in its path. Some strengthening is expected in coming days, but forecasters say Kirk is likely to begin weakening later in the week. The westward movement speed had increased to 18 mph when it was 465 miles south southwest of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

And a disturbance - a broad area of low pressure - sandwiched between Bermuda and the Bahamas may make a go at soaking the already water-logged North Carolina by mid-week.

"That means even if this does develop, it will likely miss Florida and move north, impacting the Carolinas", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Forecast track for Tropical Storm Kirk

That includes the former Tropical Depression Eleven, which dissipated on Sunday morning before reaching the islands.

Below is additional information from the National Hurricane Center.

Environmental conditions are forecast to become slightly more conducive for development during the next couple of days while the system moves west-northwest.

The 5 a.m. update on Tropical Depression 11.

The Met Office says at 11 am, Tropical StormKirk was about 2180 miles east-southeast of Antigua moving rapidly west at 21 mph as a minimal storm w/winds of 40 mph. The depression had been approaching the Lesser Antilles but thanks to hostile winds only a cyclonic wisp of clouds remained. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a 20% chance of development over the next 2 days, but a 40% chance of development over the next 5 days.
