Tropical Storm Rosa to become MAJOR hurricane

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

Regardless of development, sustained surface winds of between 25 to 35 miles per hour (40 to 55 km/h) with higher gusts are expected to spread across the islands starting Wednesday night and persisting into Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center has reissued tropical storm warnings for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominca, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

In its 5:00 am update, the Barbados Meteorological Services said that Tropical Storm Kirk was centred near 13.5N 58.3W or about 85 miles (135 km) east north-east of Barbados.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for... The good news with this system is that most of the rain associated with it is located east of its center, mainly keeping most of the rain offshore and away from the Carolinas.

Kirk's projected track shows it weakening into a tropical depression again along a path south of Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica. Kirk is moving off to the west at 18 miles per hour, and will gradually strengthen over the next few days.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or risky.

Newsday was told that while TT had nothing to worry about, islands including Barbados and Guadaloupe are expected to be hit by the storm, which will then dissipate in the Caribbean Sea. The system is expected to run into heavy wind shear as it enters the Caribbean Sea, which will likely work to tear it apart.

"By Thursday or Friday, Leslie is expected to reacquire subtropical or tropical characteristics while the cyclone moves slowly eastward to east-northeastward over the north-central Atlantic", the hurricane center's outlook said.

Across eastern Puerto Rico, Kirk is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches by Friday and Saturday.

These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on the islands.
