Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical storm Kirk is forecast to strike Barbados at about ...

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the eastern Atlantic and is moving rapidly westward.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center expect Kirk to move westward across the deep tropical Atlantic.

Forecasters say it now poses no threats to land.

The forecast says "shower and thunderstorm activity continues to become better organized near the center of a low pressure system located about 500 miles south of the southern Cabo Verde Islands, and a tropical depression appears to be forming". The National Hurricane Service said that some strengthening is expected through Sunday, but it will stay a tropical storm.

The storm is moving west at 15 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour.

Sergio Aguero set for decade at Man City after signing extension
Jesus, who signed a two-year extension himself in August, is 158 goals behind Aguero's all-time record of 204 goals for the club. City, now third in the league standings with 13 points, visit promoted Cardiff City on Saturday.

"If these trends continue, advisories will be initiated on this system later today while the low moves westward at about 20 miles per hour".

Elsewhere, the area of disturbed weather located between Bermuda and the Bahamas that should move by the southeastern US coast has a 30 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm in the next five days, the hurricane center said. Kirk will then weaken during the middle to latter portion of the week as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

That system is now producing limited showers and thunderstorms, but could see some development.

The depression has winds of 30 miles per hour and it is moving northwest at 3 miles per hour.

"The strong upper-level winds now affecting the system are expected to diminish, and this could favor some development during the next couple of days", forecasters said. The low near Bermuda may move toward the southeast coast.
