Kirk returns as tropical storm, other disturbances in Atlantic

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

It is moving generally to the west at about 18 miles per hour.

Wind speeds will start to increase across Barbados later tonight, with sustained surface winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour (40 to 55 km/h) with gusts to storm force expected to spread across the island tomorrow.

At 8 a.m, Tropical Storm Kirk, carrying maximum sustained winds near 45 miles per hour, was located about 415 miles east of Barbados and about 535 miles east southeast of Martinique and moving towards the west at 18 miles per hour.

The second installment of Kirk, resurrected Wednesday from the first Kirk's remnants, was continuing to trek west toward the Caribbean at a decent clip, although not quite as fast as earlier in the week.

A strengthening trend is expected to resume soon, and it seems likely that Rosa will rapidly intensify during the next couple of days while it remains over warm SSTs and in an environment of low wind shear of 10 kt or less.

Kirk's projected track shows it weakening into a tropical depression again along a path south of Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Barbados, St Lucia, Dominica, Martinique, and Guadeloupe, with the NHC saying that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

Post-tropical cyclone Leslie is still lingering in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

"A small-craft Warning means in this case that wind-speeds of 25 to 33 knots (47 to 62 km/h) and/or seas equal to or greater than 3m (10ft) will be affecting the marine area".

"It could threaten parts of the Windward Islands with strong to perhaps damaging winds and heavy rainfall by Thursday night or Friday", Dan Kottlowski, a hurricane expert with AccuWeather, said.

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. Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or risky. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon or evening.
