Tropical Storm Kirk, the 11th named storm of the season, developed on Saturday morning and is moving through an area of warm water and relatively low shear, according to AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski.

The storm is located about 465 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and now doesn't pose a threat to land, according to the latest advisory. An even faster westward motion across the tropical Atlantic is expected through Tuesday.

Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday.

Forecasters are also watching Tropical Depression 11 near the Windward Islands and keeping a close eye on three other areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic.

Olivier Giroud's fabled connection with Eden Hazard absent in Chelsea's draw
As the sun came out at the London Stadium , Chelsea again established control and almost took the lead when N'Golo Kante headed wide.

Leslie is moving a 6 miles per hour, and only a "little motion is expected today. In fact, after becoming extratropical, the models show Leslie merging with another frontal low to its north, leading to the formation of a powerful slow-moving non-tropical low with gale- or storm-force winds over the central Atlantic later this week", reads a discussion of the storm. Kirk has hit warp speed today, now moving at 23 miles per hour. The depression had been approaching the Lesser Antilles but thanks to hostile winds only a cyclonic wisp of clouds remained.

Upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting chances for additional development while the system moves near the southeastern US coast. The storm is located about 1,200 miles west of the Azores Islands. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a 60% chance of tropical development over the next 2 days, and a 70% chance of development over the next 5 days.
