Kirk regenerates into tropical storm, may dump inches of rain on BVI

Ismael LynchSep 27, 2018

Tropical Storm Kirk is located at about 470 MI...755 KM E of Barbados.

"Gusty winds and locally heavy rains are likely for the Windward and Leeward islands over the next couple of days", the report said.

However, NOAA advised swells from Rosa will pound southwestern Mexico and the southern Baja California Peninsula later on this week into the weekend. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

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

You can count on the NBC2 Hurricane Tracking Team to alert you first on any breaking developments with Tropical Storm Kirk. Kirk will eventually be located south of an area of high pressure near Bermuda.

A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

"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.

A hurricane is a tropical cyclone that has maximum sustained surface winds of 74 miles per hour or greater.

"Although satellite data indicate that the system still lacks a closed circulation, this disturbance could still redevelop into a tropical cyclone during the next day or two before it moves into an area of highly unfavorable upper-level winds as it approaches the Caribbean Sea", said a 2 p.m. Tuesday outlook from the hurricane center.

A Hurricane Warning is issued when sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher are EXPECTED somewhere within the specified area of the Warning.

While the Atlantic Ocean is taking a reprieve from major hurricanes, over in the Pacific Ocean Typhoon Trami poses a threat to Taiwan and Japan. The minimum threshold for hurricanes is winds measuring 74 miles per hour.

Forecasters say the monster storm will cause high winds, flooding and mudslides on arrival.
