Two weather systems are now swirling in the Atlantic Ocean, with the Bermuda Weather Service saying both the systems - Tropical Depression Eleven and Tropical Storm Kirk - are "not a threat to Bermuda at this time".

Kirk could potentially impact the USVI in some form during the upcoming weekend, according to the storm's projected path.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Kirk was 465 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands.

"Some intensification is likely over warm water over the next few days, but wind shear will weaken the storm as it approaches the lesser Antilles", said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Ian Oliver.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

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

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Kirk does not pose a threat to the USA over the next eight days.

Tropical Disturbance 2: A broad area of low pressure located about 200 miles south of Bermuda is producing only minimal shower activity.

The National Hurricane Center is also now monitoring two other areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic.

The depression has winds of 30 miles per hour and it is moving northwest at 3 miles per hour.

A system in the open waters of the Atlantic continues to organize and has a medium chance of development.

The storm will move toward the west-northwest through early next week and is not a threat to Florida. The complex would likely be a weak system if it does develop.
