Tropical Storm Kirk picked up speed in the Atlantic Ocean in Sunday's first hours, but only maintained its winds just at tropical storm force level.

As for Kirk, it was located about 950 miles west-southwest of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands and about 1,615 miles east of the Windward Islands, the 5 a.m. advisory showed.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Kirk chugged across the southern Atlantic on a westward heading toward the Lesser Antilles.

The latest National Hurricane Center Kirk storm track is still closely following a blend of the GFS, ECMWF, and HFIP Corrected Consensus model along the southern edge of the guidance envelope.

Tropical Depression Eleven is still expected to dissipate in the next day or so, without causing problems for land, the center said.

NHC forecasters predict Leslie will likely be absorbed by a larger low-pressure system by mid-week.

But in the center's 11 a.m. advisory, that system jumped to name status: Tropical Storm Kirk. Kirk remains somewhat disorganized but is expected to slowly strengthen until it reaches the Caribbean going into Thursday. We will have a 40 percent chance for some showers and storms throughout the day. The disturbance will be traveling west and west-northwestward at about 10 miles per hour, but will again encounter upper-level winds by Wednesday as it approaches the southeastern coast of the U.S.

However, Barbados is likely to experience moderate to heavy showers and occasional gusty winds from the system as it moves across the island chain late Monday into Tuesday.

Finally, a non-tropical low pressure system is forming about 900 miles west-southwest of the Azores. Follow WBRZ Weather on Facebook and Twitter for even more weather updates while you are on the go.
