Tropical Storm Rosa likely to be major hurricane soon, forecasters say

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina Former Tropical Storm Kirk could make a comeback
| 30 September, 2018, 06:56

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain could fall in parts of Dominica and Martinique.

Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move over the Lesser Antilles at wind speeds of near 50 miles per hour (85km/h).

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC) on September 26 the center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 12.1 degrees north and longitude 54.3 degrees west.

The storm is still expected to lessen to a tropical depression by Friday evening and should pass south of Cayman on Tuesday. This general motion with a slight decrease in forward speed is expected over the next few days. Gradual weakening is anticipated during the next couple of days, but Kirk is forecast to move across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea as a tropical storm.


At 8:00 a.m. today, the center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 13.6 north, longitude 58.7 west or 157 miles or 252 km east of Saint Lucia.

Now however, the governments of Barbados and St. Lucia have issued a tropical storm warning for people there.

It said that the system, which was yesterday 1, 615 miles, east of the Windward Islands - Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines - had sustained maximum winds of 35 miles per hour (mph). There is already a Tropical Storm watch issued for these destinations.

The NHC said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but swells generated by Rosa would affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico and the southern Baja California Peninsula in Mexico later this week into the weekend. We also suggest checking with the cruise line for official updates not just regarding Tropical Storm Kirk but any other storms too. "These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the hurricane center said.
