Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the eastern Atlantic and is moving rapidly westward.

The latest forecast says Kirk was moving west near 14 miles per hour and a westward to west- northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight.

Kirk is moving toward the west-northwest near 24 km/h, and a westward to west-northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight.

While the USA has yet to move forward with the additional $267 billion in tariffs does not mean it won't, stay tuned. In response, both the U.S. and China threatened to further increase tariffs on each other's key exports.

NHC forecasters say that some strengthening is predicted during the next day or two.

Kirk is the eleventh named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. It has maximum sustained winds of 25 miles per hour and is moving west at 12 miles per hour.

"It's got all the ingredients it needs to become a strong storm, a major hurricane, so we want you all to take this very seriously", WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said.

Tropical storm Kirk is forecast to strike Barbados at about 20:00 GMT on 27 September. First, a non- tropical low pressure system now located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Azores is producing gale-force winds with some associated showers and thunderstorms. The environment over the next few days was expected to support some further intensification.

Also in the Caribbean, Tropical Depression 11 - which was actually located closer to us than Kirk, about 145 miles east-north east of the Windward Islands - has dissipated, the hurricane center said. It may impact the Windward Islands as soon as Wednesday. This system could become a sub-tropical or tropical system early next week. After passing the Cabo Verde Islands the system was not expected to pose a direct threat to land for at least several days. Then, weakening is likely during the middle to latter part of the week.

It is moving towards the west at 18 miles per hour.
