The storm is likely going to be weakened by "strong upper-level winds" and will likely not develop to a tropical depression or storm.

An inverted trough - or an area of relatively low pressure - moving east to west across the tropics.

The latest analysis of Kirk found a center of circulation but also winds up to 45 miles per hour.

Elsewhere, Storm Leslie was downgraded into a non-tropical storm on Tuesday although it could potentiall ramp up again in size later this week.

The most serious threat from Kirk is expected to be from rainfall.

A tropical storm warning, meaning that tropical storm conditions were likely over the next 36 hours, was in effect for islands along the eastern wall of the Caribbean including Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Guadaloupe.

Tropical Storm Kirk was located near 12.0N 53.5W or about 415 miles (665km) east of Barbados at 8:00 am and had maximum sustained winds were near 45mph (75km/h).

Still, Israel worries that the advanced missile system could make it more hard for them to target Iranian positions inside Syria . Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300s, which Israel feared Syria could use against it.

Meanwhile, Kirk has restrengthened into a tropical storm, and tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for portions of the Lesser Antilles. "On the forecast track, the centre will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night".

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

But, as with the remnants of Kirk, it's not expected to do much long term. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week.

NHC predicts Kirk will approach Barbados and the northern Windward Islands Thursday afternoon and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Friday morning. A tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

It said that tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or risky.

These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on the islands.
