11 a.m. UPDATE: Tropical Storm Kirk continues its westward trek, and is now moving west at 21 miles per hour. The complex would likely be a weak system if it does develop.

Tropical Storm Kirk has formed off the coast of Sierra Leone and will trek westward over the next week.

At 5 a.m., the center of the poorly organized depression was located near 14.5 degrees north or about 320 miles east north-east of Barbados.

Kirk does not pose a threat to the US over the next eight days. This system could become a sub-tropical or tropical system early next week. Kirk will then weaken during the middle to latter portion of the week as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

Satellite imagery indicates that a non-tropical low pressure system is forming along a frontal boundary about 900 miles west-southwest of the Azores.
