Watchers of the Atlantic tropics might recall that the short-lived Tropical Storm Kirk weakened to a depression on Sunday before fizzling into a blob of clouds and storms by Monday.

On the forecast track, the centre of Kirk will move across the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area by Thursday evening.

Tropical Storm Kirk moved closer to the Lesser Antilles on Thursday morning as it was only about 60 miles east-northeast of Barbados, according to the 8 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

Kirk has top winds estimated at 45 miles per hour Wednesday morning.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85km/h) with tropical-storm-force winds now extending outwards to about 140 miles (220 km), mostly north and east of the center.

The affected islands will likely experience tropical storm conditions Thursday, including very gusty winds and heavy rain.

Hazard Management Cayman Islands tweeted about the storm Wednesday morning, saying it was "currently a low threat" to the Cayman Islands. One disturbance is near the North Carolina coast, and the other one is post-tropical cyclone Leslie. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week.

The storm is expected to be ripped apart by stronger wind shears in the Caribbean Sea this weekend. "The chance of tropical development over the next five days was 70 percent". Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or unsafe.

Kirk is expected to produce total rainfall of 4 to 6 inches across the northern Windward and southern Leeward Islands with isolated maximum totals up to 10 inches across Martinique and Dominica.
