ORIGINAL STORY: Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move west through the Atlantic, and forecasters continue to predict it may be in the Caribbean by Thursday morning.

On the forecast track, very little strengthening is expected at Kirk moves closer to the Windward Islands.

The system will likely dissipate later today or early Monday before reaching the Lesser Antilles. The storm was moving west at 14 miles per hour. That disturbance constitutes the remnants of Hurricane Florence, which saturated the Carolinas with rain and wind last week.

Doing significant business with anyone on the USA blacklist can trigger sanctions like those imposed on China. A Russian MP said the USA sanctions will have no impact on the sales of its fighter jets and missiles.

The other system - north of South Florida - has a 30 percent chance of forming into a tropical cyclone, the National Hurricane Center says.

"If these trends continue, advisories will be initiated on this system later today while the low moves westward at about 20 miles per hour".

Kirk does not pose a threat to the US over the next eight days.

Tropical Storm Kirk has formed off the coast of Sierra Leone and will trek westward over the next week.

Almost all of the North Carolina and SC coasts are included in the cone of uncertainty for the storm and the latest model Saturday night showed the storm making landfall in Wilmington. Overall, this storm is expected to continue moving mainly to the west due to a sub-tropical ridge north of it.

The Met Office says at 11 am, Tropical StormKirk was about 2180 miles east-southeast of Antigua moving rapidly west at 21 mph as a minimal storm w/winds of 40 mph. We will have a 40 percent chance for some showers and storms throughout the day. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it added. However, they add it may begin weakening in the middle of the week. This system, if it were to develop would not be named Florence, and instead take the next name on the list. Then an nearly due west path is forecast through the rest of the weekend and through early next week.
