In the Tropics:

Tropical Storm Bret has formed over the central Atlantic. As of 4am Tuesday, Bret was 1130 miles east of the Windward Islands and moving to the west at 17mph with maximum sustained winds of 40mph. Bret is expected to gradually strengthen over the next few days and could become a hurricane before the end of the week as it continues westward.

In the eastern Atlantic, a tropical wave located several hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear favorable for further development of this system, and there is a fifty percent chance that a tropical depression could form in a couple of days while the system moves westward at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic.
