After reportedly producing wind gusts of up to 60 mph overnight Thursday, Tropical Storm Bret moved away from the eastern Caribbean islands on Friday.
It struck a few islands in the Lesser Antilles at the same time.
As the storm moves further away and the conditions improve, all Tropical Storm Warnings have been canceled.
A maximum gust of 69 mph was recorded overnight in Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia, a gust of 56 mph was recorded on Barbados, a gust of 53 mph was recorded in Martinique, and another gust of 49 mph was recorded in Castries, Saint Lucia.
The FOX Forecast Center is keeping an eye on more than just Tropical Storm Bret in the Atlantic basin.
Tropical Storm Cindy formed Thursday over the central Atlantic to the east of Bret.
Two tropical cyclones have formed in the tropical Atlantic in June for the first time in recorded history, east of the Lesser Antilles.
The Atlantic is off to a quick start this year because long-term averages from the NHC indicate that the season’s first named storm typically does not develop until June 20, the second named storm typically does not develop until July 17, and the third named storm typically does not develop until August 3.
Where is Bret, a tropical storm?
The center of Tropical Storm Bret was approximately 235 miles west of St. Vincent as of early Friday morning.
The storm is moving west at about 21 mph and has sustained maximum winds of 60 mph.
How is Tropical Storm Bret expected to develop?
As Tropical Storm Bret approaches the eastern Caribbean Sea on Friday, the National Hurricane Center expects it to weaken.
On Thursday, rainbands began to affect the Lesser Antilles, with winds reaching 50-60 mph in Martinique.
According to the FOX Forecast Center, in addition to strong wind gusts, heavy rainfall and landslides may be some of the most significant effects.
Through Saturday, parts of the Caribbean islands from Guadeloupe south to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, including Barbados, could see between 3 and 6 inches of rain, with isolated amounts of up to 10 inches.
