Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, September 23, 2018, due the presence of Tropical Storm Kirk over the Atlantic Ocean.

Kirk expected to pass south of the BVI on Friday, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said in its latest weather update Monday morning. It may impact the Windward Islands as soon as Wednesday. Its maximum sustained winds were at 40 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters say Subtropical Storm Leslie, newly formed in the North Atlantic, is expected to dissipate in a few days. Kirk was barely hanging on as a tropical storm with only 40 miles per hour winds thanks to lots of African dust in its path.

NHC forecasters predict Leslie will likely be absorbed by a larger low-pressure system by mid-week.

A discussion from the NHC reads: "This forecast takes Kirk toward the Lesser Antilles in 3 to 4 days and interests there should monitor the progress of this system". National Weather Service advisory, Kirk's sustained winds measured 40 mph and extended 70 miles north of the storm's center.

There are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Some intensification is possible this weekend, but vertical wind shear may increase next week possibly limiting additional strengthening. A westward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight. A second cold front will approach midweek, which will cause widespread showers and slightly cooler conditions the wrap up the workweek.

The second wave is located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Azores. Leslie is not expected to hang around for very long - a new low, one that could become a named storm itself - is forecast to develop north of Leslie and absorb the storm.
