Tropical Storm Bret forms in the Atlantic


The tropical wave east-southeast of Barbados has been upgraded to Potential Tropical Cyclone #2.

The probability of a tropical depression or storm forming in the next five days was raised to 60 percent.

Satellite data and surface observations indicated that a broad low-pressure area had formed over the Gulf of Honduras, and the associated precipitation activity was showing signs of organization. Meanwhile, the developing system over the Gulf of Mexico this week will need to be watched more closely over the next four days around Florida and the southeastern U.S.

As the storm system tracks north, it'll bring a heavy rain and flooding threat to a large portion of the Gulf Coast.

As of Sunday afternoon, the system remained unorganized, and a hurricane hunter flight scheduled to investigate the system was canceled.

Warm, moist air will continue to reside over the area through the upcoming work week, with the possibility of a tropical system affecting our weather as well.

The National Weather Service in Mobile said rain chances along Alabama's Gulf Coast will begin to increase starting tonight as tropical moisture streams northward.

On average, there's one named storm in June in the Atlantic, Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico every one to two years.

The system is forecast to reach tropical storm strength on Monday.

The main hazard from Potential Tropical Cyclone Three is expected to be heavy rainfall of 4 to 8 in. with isolated maximum amounts of 10 in.

A tropical cyclone is expected to develop in the Gulf of Mexico at some point this week.

The next two hurricane names would be Bret and Cindy.

A storm warning has been issued for some Caribbean countries and called off for others as a tropical disturbance with winds around 40 miles per hour continues to move rapidly towards the southern Windward Islands.
