Kirk could potentially impact the USVI in some form during the upcoming weekend, according to the storm's projected path.

In a Saturday evening update, the National Hurricane Center said Kirk was 430 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands, moving west at 15 mph with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph.

"Maximum sustained winds remain near 30 miles per hour (45 km/h) with higher gusts".

The disturbance is next in line to become a tropical depression - an upgrade is expected by Sunday morning.

Tropical Storm Kirk continues to race across the open waters of the Atlantic, while Tropical Depression Eleven is expected to dissipate soon near the Lesser Antilles.

Also in the Caribbean, Tropical Depression 11 - which was actually located closer to us than Kirk, about 145 miles east-north east of the Windward Islands - has dissipated, the hurricane center said.

Woods seizes share of the lead at Tour Championship
Tiger Woods is back, and he'll cap his incredible comeback with an 80th career PGA Tour victory on Sunday. He shot 37 on the back nine to finish three back of playing partner Francesco Molinari.

Forecasters say it now poses no threats to land. "Weakening is likely during the middle to latter part of the week".

The depression has winds of 30 miles per hour and it is moving northwest at 3 miles per hour.

Looking further north, the Hurricane Center is watching a non-tropical low pressure system forecast to develop Friday night over the central subtropical Atlantic Ocean midway between Bermuda and the Azores.

The forecast says that "strong upper- level winds are expected to diminish by Sunday or Monday, which could allow for some slow development of this system while it moves westward and then northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean".

The storm will move toward the west-northwest through early next week and is not a threat to Florida.

This system has a low chance of development.
