Bret may dissipate.
Tropical Storm Bret is strengthening as it heads for the Caribbean, triggering new watches and warnings Wednesday morning in the islands of the Lesser Antilles. The storm is moving west across the Atlantic at 14 mph with maximum sustained wind speeds of 60 mph, forecasters said in an 11 a.m. update, a decrease in speed and increase in strength compared to the day before. Bret is expected to move across portions of the Lesser Antilles on Thursday afternoon and Thursday night, National Hurricane Center forecasters said in an 11 a.m. update, then move across the eastern Caribbean Sea on Friday. It could bring heavy rain, flooding, strong winds and dangerous waves along the coast, forecasters said. A tropical storm warning is now in effect for St. Lucia, and watches remains in effect in Barbados, Dominica, and Martinique. Additional warnings are likely for some islands in the Lesser Antilles later today. Forecasters, however, said coming conditions could weaken the storm, causing it to dissipate within a few days. Meanwhile, another tropical wave further east in the Atlantic remains likely to form into a tropical depression in the next two to seven days. As of 8 a.m. Wednesday, it was moving west at speeds of 10 to 15 mph.
