TROPICS: Kirk redevelops back into tropical storm

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

"Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) with higher gusts, and rapid strengthening is forecast to continue through tonight".

On Tuesday, Tropical Storm Rosa formed off the Pacific Coast.

Yesterday the Met Office cancelled its adverse weather warning, saying most of the activity associated with the tropical wave has passed TT, but a few showers will linger over the course of the night, while local effects are likely to produce some showers today.

Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Agency Director Mona Barnes said the agency has been monitoring the storm.

According to the NHC, it is located roughly 100 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

President Trump takes aim at Iran
There were signs during Tuesday's speech that Trump's approach has worn thin among world leaders. "So true", Mr. He added that Trump not only disagreed with that resolution but said whoever implements it "will be punished".

Tropical Storm Kirk, which has come and gone several times over the last five days, re-emerged early Wednesday morning 470 miles east of Barbados, moving west at around 18mph with winds of around 45mph.

While current projections have Kirk dissipating before approaching south Florida (thanks to that wind shear) when a tropical system approaches the Caribbean sea, we need to watch it. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week. On the forecast track, the center of Kirk will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday afternoon.

NHC said that little change in strengthening is forecast until Kirk crosses the Lesser Antilles, followed by weakening over the eastern Caribbean Sea.

But, as with the remnants of Kirk, it's not expected to do much long term. Hurricane center forecasters are giving it a 50 percent chance of development over the next 48 hours.

RAINFALL: Kirk is expected to produce total rainfall of 4 to 6 inches across the northern Windward and southern Leeward Islands with isolated maximum totals up to 10 inches across Martinique and Dominica.
