Tropical Storm Kirk weakens as it moves into Caribbean

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Kirk enters the Caribbean

The average high on this date is 88.

Some areas will flirt with the record for the hottest day of the year so far in 2018. Going into next rain chances will continue to decrease and temperatures will start to climb.

In its 11:00am bulletin, the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said Kirk was weakening over the eastern Caribbean Sea, with maximum sustained winds reduced to 45 miles per hour, but the associated weather was still affecting the Windward Islands.

The Category 3 storm had maximum sustained winds of 120 mph (195 kph) and was located 625 miles (1,005 kilometres) south-west of the southern tip of Baja California.

Supreme Court lifts ban on entry of women into Sabarimala temple
The ban on women devotees was being upheld by the Travancore Devaswom Board which manages the famous Sabarimala Ayyappa temple. The Supreme Court has lifted the ban on the entry of women into the Sabarimala Temple in the age group of 10 and 50.

Tropical Storm Kirk dropped heavy rain and unleashed flooding as it passed through the eastern Caribbean on Thursday. Maximum sustained winds remain near 50 miles per hour (85km/h) with higher gusts. Kirk is forecast to weaken to a tropical depression later Friday or Saturday, and then degenerate into a trough of low pressure by late Saturday.

Velda Joseph, in a statement, said that the organisation had been in contact with the St Lucia Meteorological Services and other relevant parties and that the tropical storm warning for the island had been lifted.

Tropical Storm warnings have been discontinued for Martinique and Guadeloupe, as well as Barbados and Dominica as Tropical Storm Kirk threatens to wreak havoc with heavy rainfall and thunderstorms. Adverse sea-conditions are expected to persist into the weekend, with northerly being generated by the remnants of Post-Tropical cyclone Leslie in the north-central Atlantic, propagate southwards across the Lesser Antilles.

Hurricane season runs through November 30.
