NOAA: Tropical Storm Kirk 2018 Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

NHC experts said some slight strengthening is possible, but the storm is forecast to become absorbed by a larger nontropical low by the middle of the week.

The other, located about 1,000 miles west-southwest of the Azores, has a 60 percent chance of formation.

While it has a chance to clip the Carolinas, the core of the system will stay off-shore as a frontal system over the U.S. East Coast keeps it from moving inland. Once the afternoon settles in, expect to see those storms forming to the east and moving to the west.

Tropical Storm Kirk was accelerating westward over the eastern tropical Atlantic as Subtropical Storm Leslie formed Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said. This may have an impact on the Carolinas. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it added.

Cardiff City v Manchester City
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until June 2021. I'm not going to discuss a game that happened eight months ago.

Nothing personal, Lions, but Rob Gronkowski reportedly nixed a trade
Obviously, the Lions are the big losers here as it is so apparent they could have used Gronkowski's services this season. The deal was thwarted when Gronkowski threatened to retire if he was shipped off to Motown.

Tropical storm Kirk is forecast to strike Barbados at about 20:00 GMT on 27 September.

"It could threaten parts of the Windward Islands Thursday or Friday of this coming week with strong to perhaps damaging winds and heavy rainfall".

As the storm moves away from the Cabo Verde Islands later Sunday, it was expected to have the opportunity to become a hurricane. Conditions are favorable that this one could gain subtropical or tropical characteristics, forecasters say, and "a subtropical or tropical cyclone is likely to form by early next week while the low meanders over the central Atlantic Ocean". It was not clear what the system would be named if it became a tropical storm. But it was expected to move on a mostly westward course during the next 24 hours. Worst case scenario is if the system were to continue at its present speed, it should be in the vicinity of the Lesser Antilles in five to six days.

"Along with the rest of the nation, I pray that we are not affected, and hope that the system weakens and veers away from the island chain altogether, but the DMUs and the Ministry are getting organized just in case".
