As the hurricane season develops, weather watchers are monitoring Subtropical Storm Leslie and an unnamed disturbance swirling east of the United States.

Kirk was 425 miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, moving west at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph.

Little change is forecast for the storm's intensity through Tuesday, but it looks likely to strengthen with winds kicking up to 65 mph within 48 hours, forecasters said Monday evening.

Tropical Storm Kirk will continue to move westward across the Atlantic through mid-week.

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Leslie is expected to dissipate in a few days.

Tropical Depression Kirk is said to be moving northwesterly at 23 miles per hour and has wind speeds of 35 miles per hour.

West Ham end Chelsea's flawless start to Premier League season

Rain chances will be 40 to 50 percent all week. It could possibly regain tropical-storm status by then, too.

The latest satellite pass over the storm, thousands of miles out in the North Atlantic, showed a hybrid system that's a mix between a tropical storm and the more common storm systems we see all the time.

Up to 8,000 residents in Georgetown, South Carolina, are on standby for evacuation ahead of two rivers bursting their banks. In comparison to tropical cyclones, these systems generally have a radius of maximum winds occurring relatively far from the center (usually greater than 60 nautical miles), and generally have a less symmetric wind field and distribution of convection. The front will overtake Leslie and it will no longer be considered a tropical system as it moves over cooler waters and lacks a closed center of circulation.

It'll continue to maintain its strength as it just wanders in the Atlantic over the course of the next several days.

According to an advisory early Monday morning, that low-pressure system roughly midway between Bermuda and the Bahamas has a 40 percent chance of development in the next five days.

SC also has ordered more evacuations as rivers continue to rise in the aftermath of a storm that has claimed at least 43 lives.
