Tropical Storm Kirk gaining speed in Atlantic

Tropical Storm Kirk gaining speed in Atlantic

Environmental conditions are forecast to become slightly more conducive for development during the next couple of days while the system moves west-northwest.

Florence, which made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on September 14 in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., brought heavy winds and rain to North Carolina and SC before making its way up the East Coast, spawning deadly tornadoes and flooding in Virginia and rain up the coast before it, as Brennan says, "became elongated and lost definition". This will all happen in the open Atlantic, away from the U.S. There are several areas the First Coast News Storm Experts are watching closely. An inch or less would be insignificant, but anything more could exacerbate the already catastrophic flooding that continues to inundate the Carolinas.

Jeff Masters, co-founder of Weather Underground, said the system, dubbed 98L, could bring 1 to 2 inches of rain to eastern North Carolina over the next week. The depression is forecast to dissipate on Sunday or early Monday.

Because it's not exactly Florence's remnants, the storm would earn a new name should it strengthen.

Kirk reached tropical storm-strength Saturday and was cruising west at about 21 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday at 11 p.m. It's now a tropical depression.




Tropical Storm Kirk will continue to move westward across the Atlantic through mid-week.

Forecasters say Subtropical Storm Leslie has formed in the north Atlantic, far from land.

For Kirk, tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles to the north of the center.

Meanwhile, Kirk weakened to a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.

At 5 p.m. Sunday, the hurricane center reported, Leslie was about 1,170 miles (1,885 kilometers) west of the Azores and moving west at 3 mph (6 kph). Clouds will build through the morning hours on Sunday, leading to light and moderate showers along the coast.
