Tropical Storm Kirk to bring heavy rains to Caribbean - NHC

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

The remnants of Kirk re-strengthened into a tropical storm.

A tropical storm watch in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

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

The GPM core observatory satellite scanned reviving tropical storm Kirk on September 25, 2018 at 7:35 p.m. (2335 UTC). Sustained winds of between 25 to 35 miles per hour (40 to 55 km/h) with higher gusts are possible across the islands today as the system passes to the north.

The Met Office still advised that people pay close attention to information being issued on its website. On the forecast track, the center of Kirk will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday afternoon.

A tropical storm warning is now in effect for Barbados, Dominica, St. Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85km/h) with tropical-storm-force winds now extending outwards to about 140 miles (220 km), mostly north and east of the center.

As Tropical Storm Kirk approached, Nurse said heavier rains were expected as the day progressed, and noted it may become necessary to issue a flood watch or warning. One disturbance is near the North Carolina coast, and the other one is post-tropical cyclone Leslie. Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds. "The chance of tropical development over the next five days was 70 percent".

The storm is expected to stay at around the same strength before weakening after it crosses over the Lower Antilles.

A Hurricane Watch is issued when sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher are POSSIBLE within the specified area of the Watch.
