Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical disturbances form, strengthen in the Atlantic as busy September ends

NHC forecasts keep it at tropical storm strength as it crosses the Atlantic over the next week.

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the eastern Atlantic and is moving rapidly westward.

The latest forecast says Kirk was moving west near 14 miles per hour and a westward to west- northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight. Forecasters expect some strengthening through Sunday. The storm traveled due west and with slow intensification was named Tropical Storm Isaac the following day.

As for the other storms forecasters are watching, a broad area of low pressure now located about 200 miles south of Bermuda is barely producing showers as of the 8 a.m. advisory.

Uber is looking to buy Deliveroo
In a bid to acquire Deliveroo , Uber plans to take over Europe's takeaway business and boost the presence of Uber Eats globally. It seems the United Kingdom food delivery start-up has deliberately avoided the USA market, cited Bloomberg .

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

But by mid-week, those upper-level winds are expected to kick in again, which would stifle further development as the system moves closer to the southeastern coast of the United States.

The storm will move toward the west-northwest through early next week and is not a threat to Florida. The season runs through November 30.
