SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

We continue to keep a close eye on the tropics with Invest 93-L. While we keep watch on that system, another system in the Atlantic Ocean has formed into our next tropical cyclone, Tropical Storm Bret.

This storm is moving WNW at 30 mph and has sustained winds of 40 mph.

The storm is currently located 125 miles SE of Trinidad and will be moving toward the Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean Sea over the next five days.

The storm is currently not considered a threat for South Mississippi or the Gulf of Mexico, but it is something we will continue to monitor and keep you updated on.

Be sure to keep up to date with information as it comes available through hurricane season by downloading the WLOX First Alert Weather App and also by checking WLOX.com for all of the latest updates.
