Finally, a non-tropical low pressure system is forming about 900 miles west-southwest of the Azores. Kirk was barely hanging on as a tropical storm with only 40 miles per hour winds thanks to lots of African dust in its path.
No coastal watches or warnings were in effect for either storm.
The next disturbance or depression upgraded to a tropical storm will be named Kirk followed by Leslie.
Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 miles per hour with higher gusts. Kirk does not pose a threat to Florida. Kirk will then weaken during the middle to latter portion of the week as it nears the Lesser Antilles.
Heavy rain dropped almost 5 inches of rain in western Virginia and eastern West Virginia overnight causing numerous reports of flash flooding in the region.
In a Sunday morning update, the NHC said: "Kirk has been accelerating since yesterday, and the current motion is westward, or 280 degrees, at 16 kt".
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center.
The NHC said that it will not be issuing any more advisories on Tropical Depression Eleven as it degenerated into a "trough of low pressure". A Tropical Depression in the Atlantic is on track to move over the SE United States but may end up getting sheared apart by strong winds. A slow west-northwest to northwest motion is expected until the system dissipates in a day or so. Then an nearly due west path is forecast through the rest of the weekend and through early next week.
But it is not fair to call it the remnants of Hurricane Florence, an official with the National Hurricane Center said Thursday night.
"The Cape Fear River will crest again this weekend, along with the Lumber River", the North Carolina Department of Transportation wrote in a tweet on September 31, adding that the Neuse will also rise on September 24, according to CNN.
Officials in North and SC warn that the flooding danger is far from over, with SC ordering evacuations there as rivers rise.
"It could approach the coast as far south as Georgia, or as far north as Virginia, and if we're really lucky it will stay away from the coast altogether", said Moss.
