Tropical Storm Kirk gaining speed in Atlantic

Overall, the state will have a big range in temperatures. This low, called Invest 98 for now, has been fighting a lot of wind shear, so development chances only sit at 30 percent.

According to the statement, engineers began inspecting the road as soon as the flood waters started to recede, and identified areas that needed to be repaired and a contractor was immediately sent to the site and began the work. This front will also help to bring high temperatures down into the mid to low 80s through the remainder of the workweek.

Tropical Depression Eleven has been downgraded to Remnants of Eleven. The storm traveled due west and with slow intensification was named Tropical Storm Isaac the following day. Kirk has hit warp speed today, now moving at 23 miles per hour.

"Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so, but Leslie is forecast to strengthen when it merges with a frontal system in two to three days", the hurricane center added. National Weather Service advisory, Kirk's sustained winds measured 40 mph and extended 70 miles north of the storm's center.

Environmental conditions are forecast to become slightly more conducive for development during the next couple of days while the system moves west-northwest.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Kirk chugged across the southern Atlantic on a westward heading toward the Lesser Antilles.

"There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect" for the storm, the agency said.

As for the other storms forecasters are watching, a broad area of low pressure now located about 200 miles south of Bermuda is barely producing showers as of the 8 a.m. advisory.

Kirk is moving "quickly westward" at 24 miles per hour, according to the NHC at 5 a.m. on Sept 24, and it has 35 miles per hour winds.

Upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting chances for additional development while the system moves near the southeastern US coast.

Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Kirk continues to trek to the west and away from Africa.
