Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center expect Kirk to move westward across the deep tropical Atlantic.

11 p.m. UPDATE: Tropical Storm Kirk's top sustained winds decreased to near 35 miles per hour as it accelerated westward across the Atlantic, according to the latest National Hurricane Center advisory.

"Tropical storm force winds will likely be limited very near to the centre with thunderstorms embedded in the rain bands".

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Leslie is no threat to land.

The next disturbance or depression upgraded to a tropical storm will be named Kirk followed by Leslie.

The remnants of Kirk are forecast to continue on a westerly course over the next few days. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 kph) with higher gusts.

Kirk, which became the season's 11th named storm on Saturday, has weakened to a depression but could see some restrengthening before hitting the "ever-present wall of wind shear" near the Lesser Antilles, Masters said. Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity expected on Monday and Tuesday.

No coastal warnings or watches are in effect for the storm. Leslie formed as part of a large wave of moisture that could spawn more systems in the coming days.
