Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Kirk has developed over the eastern Atlantic and is expected to move quickly west northwestward across the tropical Atlantic. Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity expected on Monday and Tuesday.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) says it is issuing advisories for Tropical Storm Kirk and sub-Tropical Storm Leslie, according to an update on September 23.

Like every other tropical cyclone which has approached the Lesser Antilles from the east this season, Kirk is expected to run into strong westerly shear in 4-5 days, resulting in weakening as the cyclone gets closer to the islands. National Weather Service advisory, Kirk's sustained winds measured 40 mph and extended 70 miles north of the storm's center.

The Atlantic hurricane season lasts until November 30. Given sufficient warm water and low shear, Depression Nine should become a tropical storm sometime on Saturday.

Almost all of the North Carolina and SC coasts are included in the cone of uncertainty for the storm and the latest model Saturday night showed the storm making landfall in Wilmington.

Chance of formation; Within the next 2 days: 20%; By mid next week: 30% .

"At 5:00 a.m the center of Tropical Depression #11 was located near 14.5N 55.0W... about 320 miles.512 km east of Barbados". Satellite imagery indicates that a non-tropical low pressure system is forming along a frontal boundary about 900 miles west-southwest of the Azores. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it added. Kirk will then weaken during the middle to latter portion of the week as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

"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".
