Here's where Tropical Depression Kirk is Sunday and where it's going

BWS Tropical Depression Eleven September 2018

Conditions could become a little more favorable for development after that, and forecasters give it a 30 percent chance of becoming a named storm - again - over the next five days.

A wave rolling off the African coast and 500 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands is growing, however, the center said in its 8 a.m. advisory.

Subtropical Storm Leslie joined Kirk in the Atlantic Sunday, even as the latter storm weakened to a tropical depression.

The NHC predicts that Kirk will have maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour in two days, but that's less than hurricane strength. "Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km) from the center".

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect for either storm.

Tropical Depression Eleven has been downgraded to Remnants of Eleven.

Leslie is moving a 6 miles per hour, and only a "little motion is expected today".

The Windward Islands of the eastern Caribbean are expected to be first the feel the impacts of the building storm.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of low pressure that is expected to move near the southeastern USA coast this week. A second frontal system will move in from the northwest Wednesday and into Thursday, reinforcing the existing stationary front just in time as it falls apart.

"The surface low associated with Florence became elongated and lost definition over the mid-Atlantic states, and evolved into a much larger weather system associated with a front that moved off the east coast earlier this week".

The NHC added that it is slated to hit the southeastern coast of the U.S.by September 25 and September 26.

Officials in North and SC warn that the flooding danger is far from over, with SC ordering evacuations there as rivers rise. The counties are: Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, Jones, Lenoir, Pender, Robeson, Sampson, Scotland, and southeastern Wayne south of 70 Business and east of U.S. 117.
