The National Hurricane Center upgraded Kirk's chances this morning as the cluster of thunderstorms moves quickly west at about 25 miles per hour.

According to forecasters, whatever becomes of the remnants, whether they become a tropical depression or tropical storm, or remain a disorganized patch of storms and clouds, they are heading into winds that could tear the storm apart. A pocket of little to no shear will help Kirk gain strength as it moves to the west, but it's going to have a hard time overcoming the strong winds now settled over the Caribbean. "A High-Surf Advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses a threat to life and property within the surf zone".

After being downgraded late Monday morning thanks to no longer containing a closed center of circulation, Kirk is once again a tropical storm this morning.

A Hurricane Watch is issued when sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher are POSSIBLE within the specified area of the Watch. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon or evening.
