National Hurricane Center (5:00 PM): The center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 9.5 North, longitude 32.3 West. Kirk is moving toward the west near 23 mph (37 km/h).

This fast westward motion across the Atlantic is expected to continue through Tuesday said CNN.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next day or two. Weakening is likely during the middle to latter part of the week.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center.

In a 12:00 p.m. weather report, the Saint Lucia Met Service advised residents in St. Lucia to closely monitor the progress of the storm.

Tropical Depression Eleven

Meanwhile, closer to the islands, the NHC says it will not be issuing any more advisories on Tropical Depression Eleven as it degenerated into a “trough of low pressure.”

“Maximum sustained winds are near 25 mph (35 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected over the next day or so,” said the agency, adding that there are no warnings or watches associated with the storm.

However, according to the Saint Lucia Met Service 12:00 p.m. update, this downgraded system located about 336 miles (541 kilometers) east of St. Lucia will begin to start affecting the Lesser Antilles tonight.
