Hurricane HQ: Tropics are heating up

We said hello to Bret on Monday and could soon welcome Cindy to the Atlantic by the end of the week.

Tropical Storm Bret formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday and became the second named storm of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season.

Bret will continue to strengthen, and the tropical storm is expected to become Hurricane Bret by late Wednesday.

Flood threat continues in Southeast on Tuesday

The FOX Forecast Center continues to track multiple days of severe weather and flash flooding across the Southeast as relentless rain falls over an already-drenched region.

A Flash Flood Emergency was issued Monday after nearly a foot of rain fell in southwestern Alabama, and the same area could see more thunderstorms on Tuesday. 

The FOX Forecast Center says there will be an increased risk for flash flooding each day as downpours cause issues with the already-saturated ground, with some locations receiving nearly 8 inches of rain by the end of the week.
