Kirk is a storm again

"Tropical-storm-force winds are expected to stay south of the territory".

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.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 miles per hour with higher gusts. According to resources, there are no current threats to Florida from Kirk at the present time.

The tropical storm was travelling westerly at 18 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph.

The storm is now 400 miles east of Barbados moving west at 18 mph with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. Little change in strength is forecast until Kirk moves through the central Lesser Antilles Thursday afternoon and evening. The system is expected to run into heavy wind shear as it enters the Caribbean Sea, which will likely work to tear it apart.

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

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure about 100 miles off North Carolina no longer has a chance of becoming a tropical depression, forecasters said.

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

Kirk is expected to near Barbados and the northern Windward Islands on Thursday afternoon before moving over the eastern Caribbean Sea where it will weaken. 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.

NHC says Kirk can produce total rainfall of 4 to 6 inches across the northern Windward and southern Leeward Islands - with isolated maximum totals up to 10 inches across Martinique and Dominica. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
