The storm is expected to hit the Leeward Islands later this week.

As of the 11 AM advisory from the National Hurricane Center, Kirk has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.

Kirk has top winds estimated at 45 miles per hour Wednesday morning.

The Met Office still advised that people pay close attention to information being issued on its website.

"Little change in strength is forecast until Kirk moves through the central Lesser Antilles Thursday afternoon and evening".

Kirk had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and was moving ahead at 15 miles per hour.

Kirk became a named storm Saturday and formed the farthest south of any major storm since 2012.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Tropical Storm Warnings due to Kirk were in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe, while a Tropical Storm Watch was in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines. That high will help steer the storm west across the Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean Sea.

Wind: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or risky.

The complex area of low pressure that includes what's left of Subtropical Storm Leslie is organizing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. "These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the center warned.
