The National Hurricane Center issued its final advisory on Tropical Storm Bret on Saturday, nearly 48 hours after wind gusts upwards of 60 mph were reported as the storm raked over the Lesser Antilles on Thursday night.
Wind gusts recorded overnight from Tropical Storm Bret included a maximum 69 mph gust in Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia, a 56 mph gust on Barbados, a 53 mph in Martinique and another 49 mph gust in Castries, Saint Lucia.
On Saturday, the NHC said the remnants of Bret will continue moving west and create gusty winds and rough seas along the way.
Bret is not the only feature the FOX Forecast Center is tracking in the Atlantic basin. To the east of Bret, Tropical Storm Cindy formed Thursday over the central Atlantic.
This marked the first time in recorded history that two tropical cyclones have formed east of the Lesser Antilles in the tropical Atlantic during June.
According to long-term averages from the NHC, the season's first named storm doesn't typically form until June 20, the second named storm doesn't usually develop until July 17, and the third named storm doesn't tend to form until Aug. 3, so the Atlantic is off to a swift start this year.
Where is Bret?
As of Saturday afternoon, the remnants of Tropical Storm Bret were situated about 160 miles west-northwest of Colombia's Guajira Peninsula and had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. It was moving west at 21 mph.
