  • Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominca, Martinique and Guadeloupe, and tropical storm watches were in place for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Kirk is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 miles per hour, and this general motion is expected to continue over the next few days.

There are no coastal warnings for the storm.

However, sustained winds of between 25 and 35 miles per hour with higher gusts are expected to spread across the island from tonight and persisting into tomorrow.

Nothing personal, Lions, but Rob Gronkowski reportedly nixed a trade
Elsewhere on the inactive list, Patriot mainstays Patrick Chung and Trey Flowers will sit out tonight's contest. On offense, the Lions have former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount and quarterback Matt Cassel.

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. According to resources, there are no current threats to Florida from Kirk at the present time. The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).

Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move quickly toward the Lesser Antilles, where tropical-storm conditions are expected later Thursday.

The storm is expected to stay at around the same strength before weakening after it crosses over the Lower Antilles.

Kirk is expected to approach Barbados and the northern Windward Islands later Thursday and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Friday morning. "The chance of tropical development over the next five days was 70 percent". Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon.
