On Sept. 7, a tropical depression formed in the eastern Atlantic, about 500 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands.

The National Hurricane Center says some strengthening is forecast during the next day or two. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center expect Kirk to move westward across the deep tropical Atlantic. It's holding onto it's Tropical Storm status and is moving rather quickly off to the west. Kirk is the eleventh named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. This system could become a sub-tropical or tropical system early next week. The depression is moving toward the northwest near 6 miles per hour (9 km/h).

The Met Service said the center of the storm was located 690 km south of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands, at 4:00 pm.

If the storm does form into a tropical storm, it would get a different name.

Teased by his clear eye for goal, the Old Trafford faithful will be hoping he can begin to find the net more regularly. However, on return for the second half, Portuguese star Joao Moutinho equalised for his side after just eight minutes.


Tropical Storm Kirk is not a threat to Jamaica. Northern areas will experience around 20 to 30 percent rain coverage. Unfavorable upper-level winds and dry air are expected to limit development tonight and Sunday, but conditions could become more conducive for some development of this system on Monday or Tuesday while it moves westward and west-northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean.

"It could approach the coast as far south as Georgia, or as far north as Virginia, and if we're really lucky it will stay away from the coast altogether", said Moss. However, they add it may begin weakening in the middle of the week.

"Along with the rest of the nation, I pray that we are not affected, and hope that the system weakens and veers away from the island chain altogether, but the DMUs and the Ministry are getting organized just in case". "This new low developed from part of that larger system, but it is not closely enough associated with Florence to be called its direct remnants".
