The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the Atlantic Ocean.

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

Tropical Depression Eleven is expected to dissipate as it approaches the Lesser Antilles through Sunday. It had winds of 40 miles per hour with stronger gusts.

As far as Tropical Depression Eleven, the NHC said that "little change in strength is forecast during the next day or two, and the depression is forecast to become a remnant low on Sunday". Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward from the center up to 35 miles to the northwest.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches). It was lcoated about 1145 miles west-southwest of the Azores and moving west at 3 mph. Kirk does not pose a threat to Florida.

Cohen's prosecution was carried out by the Southern District of NY after the case was referred by the special counsel's office. The White House dismissed the plea, arguing that the president was not indicted and therefore did nothing wrong.

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

The Weather Authority is tracking four tropical disturbances or depression (s) brewing in the Atlantic Ocean.

A system in the open waters of the Atlantic continues to organize and has a medium chance of development.

By the middle of next week, upper-level winds are likely to strengthen again, which would limit additional development as the system moves closer to the southeastern coast of the United States. This system will begin to move west and could organize early next week.

"The strong upper-level winds now affecting the system are expected to diminish, and this could favor some development during the next couple of days", forecasters said.
