Tropical Storm Bret forms in Atlantic off Venezuelan coast

Barbados is now under a tropical storm warning. The most likely scenario is for a weak and highly disorganized tropical storm to slowly develop by early next week.

The storm system is not yet organized enough for the NHC to declare it a tropical storm though its maximum sustained winds reach tropical storm strength of 39 miles per hour or greater.

This system is forecast to develop into a tropical storm on Monday. A Tropical Storm Warning has already been issued for part of the Louisana coast for this Potential Tropical Cyclone Three.

The hurricane center didn't think so as of Monday morning, saying it should encounter a more hostile environment as it moves deeper in the Caribbean.

A chance for showers and thunderstorms will accompany the moisture every day this week, with the greatest chances Wednesday and Thursday as a tropical system may affect the area.

The second area worth watching is a tropical wave over the open Atlantic, about 1300 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands. Most of the models keep the storm away from Florida, but as you can see in the spaghetti plot of the various models, we need to keep an eye on it. This storm is forecast to stay a tropical storm before fizzling out. We are going to leave rain chances in the forecast for these days and the greatest coverage of rain and storms will come during the afternoon and evening hours.

Hurricane season began on June 1. The unnamed system, now know as Potential Tropical Cyclone Three, is expected to make landfall in Texas or Louisiana by mid-week.

A low pressure system entering the Gulf of Mexico is likely to form into Tropical Storm Bret early this week.

As the storm system tracks north, it'll bring a heavy rain and flooding threat to a large portion of the Gulf Coast. This is expected to be able to overcome the system, and dissipate it by the end of the work week.
