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

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina Former Tropical Storm Kirk could make a comeback
Guillermo Lane | 27 September, 2018, 20:06

The remnants of Kirk has regained strength and has regenerated into a tropical storm.

The storm is expected to hit the Leeward Islands later this week.

Kirk has top winds estimated at 45 miles per hour Wednesday morning. "Rapid weakening is expected on Friday after Kirk moves over the eastern Caribbean Sea".

The Met Office still advised that people pay close attention to information being issued on its website. As you look at the official forecast from the National Hurricane Center above, you'll notice that as soon as Kirk passes the Lesser Antilles, it weakens back into a depression.

Data from the Hurricane Hunter plane indicate that maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Monitoring a severe storm risk
No severe weather is expected tonight, so rest easy (even if nighttime thunder and lightning make you nervous). Expect to see some patchy fog, and otherwise it will be cloudy with lows in the upper 50s, forecasters said.


"This disturbance is likely to redevelop into a tropical cyclone during the next day or two before it moves into an area of highly unfavourable upper-level winds as it approaches the Caribbean Sea", NHC said. Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds.

The most serious threat from Kirk is expected to be from rainfall.

A tropical storm warning is now in effect for Barbados, Dominica, St. Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Tropical Storm Kirk is on a path to dump heavy rains that could bring unsafe flooding to the eastern Caribbean, forecasters said. It has a 90 percent chance of development in the next five days. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon or evening. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on the islands.
