Former Tropical Storm Kirk could make a comeback

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

Data from the Hurricane Hunter plane indicate that maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The National Hurricane Center has reissued tropical storm warnings for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominca, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

The storm is packing maximum sustained winds of 60 mph with tropical storm-force winds reaching outward up to 115 miles from the center.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for... Forecasters say some spots could get as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain.

The storm is now 400 miles east of Barbados moving west at 18 mph with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. It had maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph) and was moving westward at 18 miles per hour (30 kph). On the forecast track, the center of Kirk will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday afternoon.

The storm is expected to stay at around the same strength before weakening after it crosses over the Lower Antilles.

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. The NHC is giving post-tropical cyclone Leslie a 50% chance of tropical or subtropical development in the next two days, and a 90% chance over the next five days.

According to forecasters, whatever becomes of the remnants, whether they become a tropical depression or tropical storm, or remain a disorganized patch of storms and clouds, they are heading into winds that could tear the storm apart.

The upper-level winds are extremely hostile ahead, however, and Kirk is expected weaken and eventually die in the Caribbean Sea. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
