Depression & Storm Currently In Atlantic Area

In a 5 p.m. update, the National Hurricane Center said Kirk was 430 miles (690 kilometers) south of the Cabo Verde Islands, moving west-northwest at 15 mph (24 kph) with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph). It's holding onto it's Tropical Storm status and is moving rather quickly off to the west.

Forecasters say it now poses no threats to land.

Officials in North and SC warn that the flooding danger is far from over, with SC ordering evacuations there as rivers rise.

"A reduction in speed is likely after 48 hours once Kirk moves south of a large central Atlantic trough, but it should still be moving along at a pretty good clip".

Forecasters are also watching Tropical Depression 11 near the Windward Islands and keeping a close eye on three other areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. It is moving rapidly to the west at 18 miles per hour. Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity expected on Monday and Tuesday. "Weakening is likely during the middle to latter part of the week".

Tropical Disturbance 2: A broad area of low pressure located about 200 miles south of Bermuda is producing only minimal shower activity.

That system is now producing limited showers and thunderstorms, but could see some development. At that time, the system will be moving westward and then northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, according to the center.

This system has a low chance of development.
