Former Tropical Storm Kirk could make a comeback

Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds.

An inverted trough - or an area of relatively low pressure - moving east to west across the tropics. Tropical Storm Kirk grew a little stronger by 11am on Wednesday with sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.

According to forecasters, whatever becomes of the remnants, whether they become a tropical depression or tropical storm, or remain a disorganized patch of storms and clouds, they are heading into winds that could tear the storm apart.

Barbados, Dominica, St Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe have all found themselves under a Tropical Storm Warning as the rejuvenated Tropical Storm Kirk makes its way towards the Windward Islands.

The center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located 595 miles east-southeast of Martinique.

At 3 a.m. today, the center of Tropical Storm Rosa was moving west-northwest near 10 miles per hour, and this general motion is forecast to continue for the next two to three days. "On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night", said the NHC at 11 a.m. on September 26. Rapid weakening is expected on Friday after Kirk emerges over the Caribbean Sea.

The longer-term forecast doesn't keep Kirk around for too long.

Post-tropical cyclone Leslie is still lingering in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week.

On this track, the centre of Kirk is expected to pass about 50 miles to the north of Barbados between tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. There may be thunderstorms in a few areas today and street/flash flooding and gusty winds are still possible in the event of heavy downpours. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon or evening.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
