Tropical Storm Bret continues to track toward the Caribbean

The latest update from the National Hurricane Center and satellite data confirm that Tropical Storm Bret continues to slowly organize. Intensification is still likely the next 2 days but Bret may never reach hurricane status. A weakening trend is forecasted when it hits the Caribbean with drier air and unfavorable conditions prevailing.

Bret will likely be a depression by Sunday and is still expected to stay away from the U.S. mainland. Enough uncertainty remains that the storm will need to be monitored closely through next week.

In the Central Tropical Atlantic, INVEST 93L has a high chance to develop into a tropical depression the next few days. Latest models keep the system away from land the next 7-10 days, but we'll still need to pay close attention heading into next week.
