In the tropics, Tropical Storm Bret is approaching the Lesser Antilles, and there is a tropical storm warning for St. Lucia. Expect watches to be upgraded to warnings for Barbados, Dominica, and Martinique. At midafternoon on Wednesday, Bret had maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour, and it was moving west at 15 miles per hour. After Bret emerges into the eastern Caribbean on Thursday night or early Friday, it will encounter wind shear that will weaken it and cause it to dissipate on Sunday. Elsewhere, the wave that’s now entering the central Atlantic has a high chance of developing and could reach depression status at any time.
