DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bret was
estimated near latitude 11.6 North, longitude 66.2 West. Bret has
increased its forward speed and is now moving between west and
west-northwest near 23 mph (37 km/h), and this general motion is
expected to continue through tomorrow. On the forecast track, Bret
or its remnants will continue to move across the southeastern
Caribbean Sea for the next couple of days.

Satellite images indicate that Bret is becoming disorganized while
losing its closed circulation.  Maximum sustained winds are near 40
mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts, and these winds are occuring well
to the northeast and north of the center. Additional weakening
should continue today, and Bret could degenerate into a tropical
wave later today or Wednesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)
to the north of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area
tonight and Wednesday.

RAINFALL:  Bret is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 2
to 4 inches over the Windward Islands and the northeastern coast of
Venezuela through today.
