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

Barbadians will have to wait until after 5 o'clock this morning to know whether or not Government will order a national shutdown due to the passage of tropical storm Kirk.

"Little change in strength is forecast until Kirk moves through the central Lesser Antilles Thursday afternoon and evening".

After being downgraded to a tropical depression earlier this week, the United States-based National Hurricane Center said on Wednesday that Tropical Storm Kirk had reorganized, with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour as of 2 p.m. AST. Kirk was moving west at 18 miles per hour.

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.

Yesterday the Met Office cancelled its adverse weather warning, saying most of the activity associated with the tropical wave has passed TT, but a few showers will linger over the course of the night, while local effects are likely to produce some showers today.

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. Leslie could be reclassified as a subtropical or tropical later Thursday. The main threat for the Carolinas would be high surf along the coast and an increased chance of rip currents.

NHC predicts Kirk will approach Barbados and the northern Windward Islands Thursday afternoon and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Friday morning. Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or unsafe. "These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the center warned.
