  • Tropical storm Kirk is forecast to strike Barbados at about ...

Overall, this storm is expected to continue moving mainly to the west due to a sub-tropical ridge north of it. The storm has winds of 40 miles per hour with some higher gusts. 745 km south-southeast of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands.

Residents are being told to "be prepared to take action in the event that they develop and pose a threat to the territory".

Widespread strong thunderstorms with heavy rain will develop in much of the Mississippi River and OH valleys, eventually spreading into parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast by late Sunday and into Monday. Northern Venezuela is also in the extended cone projection.

In a Sunday morning update, the NHC said: "Kirk has been accelerating since yesterday, and the current motion is westward, or 280 degrees, at 16 kt". The Hurricane Center forecasts slow strengthening, then weakening as the storm enters the Caribbean and undertakes a shallow curve to the west-northwest, aiming toward the Dominican Republic and Haiti. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of United States 64", it added.

The storm moving west near 5 mph towards the Windward Islands -about 500 miles away - and is expected to remain a tropical depression through Sunday afternoon.

About 1000 miles west southwest of the Azores is a non-tropical low pressure system.

Though weakened to a tropical storm, Florence was expected to regain hurricane strength as it neared Bermuda.

A faster westward motion across the deep tropical Atlantic Ocean is expected Sunday through Tuesday. The environment over the next few days was expected to support some further intensification.

"A reduction in speed is likely after 48 hours once Kirk moves south of a large central Atlantic trough, but it should still be moving along at a pretty good clip". This system could become a sub-tropical or tropical system early next week.
