Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical disturbances form, strengthen in the Atlantic as busy September ends

The National Hurricane Service said that some strengthening is expected through Sunday, but it will stay a tropical storm.

National Hurricane Center forecasters are now calling a storm that is closest to the USA, and about 485 miles east of the Windward Islands, Tropical Depression Eleven.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

There is also a tropical depression located about 480 miles east of the Windward Islands.

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 eleventh named storm of the season has developed.

The storm will move toward the west-northwest through early next week and is not a threat to Florida.

Formation chances are at 60 percent over the next 48 hours and at 70 percent through the next five days for the system approaching the Azores.

We've already passed the historical peak of hurricane season (Sept. 10), but don't let your guard down yet.

Kirk is the renamed cousin to Hurricane Florence, which made landfall at Wilmington last week, stalled over the Carolinas and then moved northward before spinning back out to sea.
