Tropical Storm Bret forms in Atlantic off Venezuelan coast

Tropical Storm Bret forms in Atlantic off Venezuelan coast

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the Mouth of the Pearl River. The NHC said thunderstorm activity associated with the weather system "continues to show signs of organization, and additional development is likely during the next day or so".

While not a closed low at the moment, this system is already producing winds of tropical storm force along with very heavy rain on the eastern side.

While forecast models are fairly uniformed on the development of a weak system, where it goes is still much less certain. A warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected to arrive sometime within the next 24 to 36 hours.

It is expected to move over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico later Monday and Tuesday, where a tropical or subtropical cyclone is likely to form. Notice how the heaviest rain totals are to our east. There is now an 80 percent chance for the disturbance to develop into a tropical depression or storm somewhere within the Gulf of Mexico over the next five days.

The next system, INVEST 92, is way out in the Atlantic Ocean.

While it was too early to say if either of the storms would directly impact South Florida, most of the early forecasts suggest that won't happen.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to reach portions of the warning area on Monday night, making outside preparations hard or unsafe. This storm is forecast to stay a tropical storm before fizzling out. But, we will get a surge of tropical moisture affiliated with this system; boosting our local rain chance.

Tonight expect scattered storms, with damaging wind and hail potential.

If it's able to do that, the name of the storm would be Bret.

A low-pressure system in the Gulf of Honduras now has an increased chance of developing into a tropical storm, according to the National Hurricane Center. This is expected to be able to overcome the system, and dissipate it by the end of the work week.
