Of these, Tropical Storm Kirk will have the best chance of sticking around long enough for impact as the storm races west across the Atlantic Ocean at a brisk 21 miles per hour and is expected to hit the accelerator around mid-week, picking up even faster westward motion by midweek, according to the National Hurricane Center.

A subtropical storms means the system has characteristics of both tropical and nontropical systems.

11 a.m. UPDATE: Tropical Storm Kirk continues its westward trek, and is now moving west at 21 miles per hour.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect and no hazards affecting land.

In the next few days, Kirk will likely run into strong wind shear, causing the storm to weaken as it approaches the Lesser Antilles, the Hurricane Center said.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Tropical Storm Kirk was located 425 miles SSW of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands. So far, none of these systems are expected to have direct impact on the Florida peninsula. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 miles per hour with higher gusts.

NHC forecasters predict Leslie will likely be absorbed by a larger low-pressure system by mid-week.

Upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting chances for additional development while the system moves near the southeastern US coast. This low, called Invest 98 for now, has been fighting a lot of wind shear, so development chances only sit at 30 percent.

Kirk expected to pass south of the BVI on Friday, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said in its latest weather update Monday morning.

Two weather systems are now swirling in the Atlantic Ocean, with the Bermuda Weather Service saying both the systems - Tropical Depression Eleven and Tropical Storm Kirk - are "not a threat to Bermuda at this time".
