NOAA: Tropical Storm Kirk 2018 Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

Kirk is expected to speed up through the weekend but, "will not be a threat to land during the next few days", Kottlowski said. It may impact the Windward Islands as soon as Wednesday. Conditions are favorable that this one could gain subtropical or tropical characteristics, forecasters say, and "a subtropical or tropical cyclone is likely to form by early next week while the low meanders over the central Atlantic Ocean".

The storm has maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour and tropical storm winds extend up to 70 miles to the north of the center. Leslie is moving south at 6 miles per hour.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center advised Sunday that Tropical Storm Kirk was moving rapidly westward over the eastern tropical Atlantic.

The system, one of four the center is watching, was expected to be upgraded by Friday night and followed through, with winds now at 30 miles per hour and moving west at 3 miles per hour as of Saturday's 11 a.m. advisory.

Aside from her impressive athletic accomplishments, Celia was also finishing her degree in Civil Engineering. Richards "had several fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting", the complaint said.

Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Kirk continues to trek to the west and away from Africa.

"A cold front is expected to approach the system, and that should cause Leslie to move eastward tonight and Tuesday". The storm is expected to reach the Lesser Antilles still at tropical storm strength by Friday, though some weakening is expected.

The latest satellite pass over the storm, thousands of miles out in the North Atlantic, showed a hybrid system that's a mix between a tropical storm and the more common storm systems we see all the time.

Upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting chances for additional development while the system moves near the southeastern USA coast. Follow WBRZ Weather on Facebook and Twitter for even more weather updates while you are on the go.
