Original: Tropical Storm Bret continues to weaken in the Southern Caribbean.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba.

Bret should continue to weaken as it interacts with the landmass of South America over the next few days.

Eventually, the moisture from Bret might make it up into the Western Caribbean as an open wave by the end of the weekend.

In the Gulf, a potential tropical system continues to move toward the Gulf Coast.  The system is highly sheared and has not developed tropical characteristics at this time.  It still has a chance to become Tropical Storm Cindy or Sub-tropical Storm Cindy before landfall, but hasn’t been designated Cindy at this time.

A Tropical Storm Warning has been extended westward to High Island, Texas.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect from west of High Island to San Luis Pass, Texas.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for…

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for…

Most of the moisture from this system is well east of the center.  This rich tropical moisture will produce flooding rains along the Central Gulf Coast.

Remember that the spaghetti model plot does not indicate the strength of a system or even development at all. It only predicts where this broad area of low pressure is expected to go.
