Steamy Heat and Storms, Busy in the Tropics

In the tropics, Tropical Storm Bret is moving a bit more rapidly toward the Lesser Antilles, portions of which are likely to see tropical storm conditions on Thursday.  The latest thinking from the National Hurricane Center is that Bret is unlikely to reach hurricane strength and that the storm will encounter significant wind shear in the eastern Caribbean.  Elsewhere, the wave in the eastern Atlantic now has a high chance of becoming a depression.
