Gulf Coast preparing for tropical storm that hasn't quite formed yet
Jun 21 2017
Tropical Storm Bret is expected to weaken as it moves across the Caribbean Tuesday while a second, larger system rolling across the Gulf of Mexico appears to be intensifying. Tropical Storm Bret has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30, and has an average of 9.6 named storms, 5.9 hurricanes and 2.3 intense hurricanes every year.
As Tropical Storm Cindy moves across the northern half of the Gulf of Mexico, periods of showers and isolated thunderstorms can be expected through the rest of the week.
So far, "Potential Tropical Cyclone Three" has winds of 40 miles per hour, but Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft were unable to find a well-defined center of circulation, which keeps it from being a named storm.

The construction materials punched through the roof and fell all the way down to the basement level, the FDNY said. Initially it was believed to have been a crane that collapsed but FDNY clarified that it was a roof.
It was earlier called "Potential Tropical Cyclone Three" before it developed a well-defined center of circulation Tuesday afternoon, the threshold at which it can be called a tropical storm.
Storm surge still does not look to be significant with coastal areas likely experiencing a water rise of 1 to 3 feet as the storm comes ashore tomorrow night which would not result in significant inundation from storm surge flooding.
A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours. The warning may be issued earlier when other conditions, such as the onset of tropical storm-force winds, are expected to limit the time available to take protective actions for surge (e.g., evacuations). This is the National Hurricane's new way of labeling a tropical system that isn't yet a depression or tropical storm, but might become one. Flash flooding along with flooding from swollen streams and rivers is possible.
The National Hurricane Center said that interest from the Texas coast to the Florida Panhandle should monitor this storm.
Meanwhile, tropical storm Bret is expected to begin weakening later Tuesday and dissipate on Thursday.
