Tropical Storm Bret forms in Atlantic off Venezuelan coast

Heavy rain and gusty winds are expected over the Windward Islands.

Tracking The Tropics 6/19Tracking 2 areas in the tropics.

If these two systems strengthen into tropical storms, the next names on the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Names list will be Bret and Cindy.

Tonight expect scattered storms, with damaging wind and hail potential. Secondary threats are wind (depending on the strength of the system) and isolated tornadoes.

Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to fly into an area of interest in the Caribbean Sunday.

At 5 p.m., the center of the system was located near 7.5°N 50.4°W at or about 815 miles east south east of the Windward Island.

The hurricane center said conditions appear to be good for the low to develop slowly as it moves northwestward and into the Gulf early next week.

The Windward Islands may begin to see gusty winds and heavy rain Monday night or early Tuesday, making outside preparations hard or risky by this time. Regardless of development, heavy rains are expected over portions of Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and western Cuba during the next several days.

Storm warnings have been issued for Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada and the cost of Venezuela from Pedernales to Cumana.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.

The track is still uncertain but forecast models suggest the system has the potential to impact land anywhere between southern Texas and northern Florida.

The area of disturbed weather near the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico early this week.

But that's only one qualification for a tropical depression or storm.

Tropical development in the open Atlantic only happens about once per decade. A tropical storm watch is in effect for Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba.
