STORMTRACKER 33 — There's no doubt that Tropical Storm Bret is going to be a "fish storm", meaning it will only affect the fish of the sea. The current satellite imagery shows the storm deteriorating a bit due to the fact that dry air has started to enter the system. As of the 10pm National Hurricane Center advisory on Monday, Bret had winds of 60 mph and was moving NNE at 7 mph. The only risk it will bring to the United States is the possibility of rip currents along the East Coast. Bermuda could also feel some affects depending on how far south the storm travels. The storm is heading into cooler waters and a higher wind shear environment so expect this storm to start falling apart fast as we head into Wednesday and Thursday. Elsewhere in the tropics, there are a couple of models that are trying to develop a wave that is currently heading across the eastern Atlantic. Still far out with plenty of time to track it. The next name on the list in the Atlantic will be Cindy. We are always tracking the tropics here in the STORMTRACKER33 Weather Center. Stay with us for up to the minute updates.
