Tropical Storm Kirk formed south of the Cabo Verde islands on Saturday.

"A faster westward motion across the deep tropical Atlantic Ocean is expected Sunday through Tuesday". The storm traveled due west and with slow intensification was named Tropical Storm Isaac the following day.

Kirk is expected to speed up through the weekend but, "will not be a threat to land during the next few days", Kottlowski said.

Officials in North and SC warn that the flooding danger is far from over, with SC ordering evacuations there as rivers rise.

"Kirk is moving through an environment of warm water and within an area of relatively low shear", AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.


The disturbance is next in line to become a tropical depression - an upgrade is expected by Sunday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

Elsewhere, Tropical Depression Eleven is poorly organized near the Lesser Antilles and it is expected to continue to weaken.

That strong wind shear is also taking it's toll on Tropical Depression Eleven. "After that time, with the development of the new low to the north, Leslie will likely move east until it becomes absorbed", forecasters said. The other, located about 1,000 miles north-northwest of the Azores, has a 70 percent chance of formation. "The low is forecast to move westward and west-northwestward at about 10 miles per hour over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean and by Tuesday or Wednesday, upper-level winds are forecast to strengthen again, likely limiting the development".
