Kirk reforms, gains strength as it approaches Caribbean

The storm was moving west-northwest at about 10 mph, with tropical storm-force winds reaching outward up to 60 miles from the center.

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk is gaining strength in the eastern Caribbean.

On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night.

A statement issued by the Government Information Service this morning said: "It will be work as usual across Barbados today, but members of the public are urged to exercise caution and continue monitoring the passage of Tropical Storm Kirk". A westward to west-northwestward motion is expected over the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Watchers of the Atlantic tropics might recall that the short-lived Tropical Storm Kirk weakened to a depression on Sunday before. The associated shower activity is gradually becoming more organized, and Leslie is expected to again become a subtropical storm, or possibly a tropical storm, later today or Friday while it moves west-southwestward at about 10 miles per hour over the north-central Atlantic.

Rosa had maximum sustained winds of 125 mph (205 kph) and was located about 570 miles (915 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.

The NHC said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect as the region continues to monitor a busy 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season that has already registered five hurricanes so far. We also suggest checking with the cruise line for official updates not just regarding Tropical Storm Kirk but any other storms too.

From late Friday and into this weekend, clusters of showers and thunderstorms have the potential to bring localised flash flooding to the U.S. and the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
