Tropical Storm Kirk expected to weaken by weekend

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

Acting Prime Minister Dale Marshall issued this statement a few minutes ago as the effects of Tropical Storm Kirk began to take effect.

The storm is expected to hit the Leeward Islands later this week.

The National Hurricane Center upgraded Kirk's chances this morning as the cluster of thunderstorms moves quickly west at about 25 miles per hour.

Kirk is expected to approach Barbados and the northern Windward Islands later Thursday and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Friday morning.

United had taken the lead in the third minute with a well-placed shot from Juan Mata after Anthony Martial had burst down the left flank.

The Met Office still advised that people pay close attention to information being issued on its website. Kirk was moving west at 18 miles per hour. As you look at the official forecast from the National Hurricane Center above, you'll notice that as soon as Kirk passes the Lesser Antilles, it weakens back into a depression. This storm does not pose a threat to Florida.

Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move quickly toward the Lesser Antilles, where tropical-storm conditions are expected later Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Finally, Post-Tropical Cyclone Leslie, in the central Atlantic, has a 70 percent chance of becoming organized again over the next five days. 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. In addition, pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and scattered thunderstorms can be expected with rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 millimeters), and isolated higher amount in mountainous areas. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
