Tropical Storm Kirk speeds up as it moves west across the Atlantic

Tropical depression forms in the Atlantic; three other disturbances tracked

It's now a tropical depression. But forecasters said Kirk could degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves quickly across the tropical central Atlantic over the next several days.

Tropical Storm Kirk was continuing to move west across the eastern Atlantic but didn't pose any threat to land, forecasters said before a Monday morning advisory from the National Hurricane Center showed Kirk rated just as a tropical depression. Kirk remains somewhat disorganized but is expected to slowly strengthen until it reaches the Caribbean going into Thursday. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour, but Leslie is forecast to dissipate in a few days. It was not clear what the system would be named if it became a tropical storm.

According to the National Hurricane Center, four named storms develop in the Atlantic after mid-September in an average season, three of which become hurricanes and one of which becomes a Category 3 or stronger hurricane. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. Kirk's forecast of continued westward movement and strengthening early in the week hasn't changed.
