HOLT, Fla., Sept. 25, 2018—Tropical waves in the Atlantic continue to show possibilities of further development according to the National Hurricane Center.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft investigating the low-pressure area centered about 175 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., found the system has become better defined.
However, associated shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized and the low has not yet developed into a tropical depression.
Some additional development is possible tonight as the low moves north near or over portions of extreme eastern North Carolina, according to the NHC.
After tonight, the NHC says development appears unlikely due to strong wind shear while the system moves closer to the east coast of the United States.
The NHC gives this system a 50-50 chance for continued growth through its five-day forecast period.
Kirk went from a tropical storm, to a depression, to a wave in the past 24-to-48 hours.
The now-remnants of Kirk are moving quickly westward at 20-to-25 mph and has become a little better organized, according to the NHC.
The center is giving this system a 70 percent chance of further development during the next five days and is forecasting for it to redevelop into a tropical system during the next day or two before it moves into an area of highly unfavorable upper-level winds as it approaches the Caribbean Sea.
A similar forecast is on tap for Leslie as the system continues to meander over the central Atlantic for the next day or so.
The NHC is giving Leslie an 80 percent chance to develop further.
By Thursday or Friday, Leslie is expected to reacquire subtropical or tropical characteristics while the storm moves slowly east-to-east-northeast over the north-central Atlantic.
