Kirk regenerates into tropical storm, may dump inches of rain on BVI

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds.

Tropical Storm Kirk is expected to move through the Lesser Antilles by Thursday evening, and National Hurricane Center analysts expect it to weaken again to a tropical depression by Saturday morning.

You can count on the NBC2 Hurricane Tracking Team to alert you first on any breaking developments with Tropical Storm Kirk. On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night.

And while the storms that threaten Florida at this time of the year tend to follow a similar path toward the Caribbean, it doesn't look like the conditions are there to keep a potential Kirk 2.0 alive that long.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85km/h) with tropical-storm-force winds now extending outwards to about 140 miles (220 km), mostly north and east of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominca, Martinique and Guadeloupe, and tropical storm watches were in place for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

"This disturbance is likely to redevelop into a tropical cyclone during the next day or two before it moves into an area of highly unfavourable upper-level winds as it approaches the Caribbean Sea", NHC said. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week. This system has a very high chance of redevelopment.

Gilbert Miller, a senior forecaster with the Cayman Islands National Weather Service, said Wednesday afternoon that the storm is slated to impact Jamaica Monday and pass south of Cayman.

Hurricane season runs through November 30. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon.

"Kirk is expected to produce total rainfall of 4 to 6 inches (10-15 cm) across the northern Windward and southern Leeward Islands with isolated maximum totals up to 10 inches across Martinique and Dominica".

Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh accuser, to testify Thursday morning
In a statement , Ford's attorneys - Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich - confirmed "important progress" had been made. It was unclear whether Grassley would permit more negotiations Saturday, with patience among Republicans is running thin.
