Tropical Storm Rosa to become major Hurricane soon

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 miles per hour (75 km/h) with higher gusts.

In addition, pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and scattered thunderstorms are expected.

"Rainfall accumulations of at least 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 millimetres) are possible between tonight and Friday morning". Some flash-flooding is likely in low-lying areas, thus, residents are urged to be on the alert and take all necessary precautions.

There are no coastal warnings or watches for the storm, which is the 10th hurricane of the eastern Pacific 2018 season.

Kirk became a named storm Saturday and formed the farthest south of any major storm since 2012.

Interests elsewhere in the central and northern Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Kirk as additional warnings or watches could be issued later today, N.H.C. said.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said tropical storm Rosa's current wind speeds of 65mph will intensify quickly, swirling into hurricane status later this afternoon.

"By Thursday or Friday, Leslie is expected to reacquire subtropical or tropical characteristics while the cyclone moves slowly eastward to east-northeastward over the north-central Atlantic", the hurricane center's outlook said.

"The low is forecast to move northeastward this morning, and it could produce scattered showers and unsafe surf and rip currents across eastern North Carolina as it passes by".

The second installment of Kirk, resurrected Wednesday from the first Kirk's remnants, was continuing to trek west toward the Caribbean at a decent clip, although not quite as fast as earlier in the week.

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure off North Carolina has a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression.
