Tropical Storm Bret has formed about 125 miles southeast of Trinidad in the Atlantic.
Bret, the second named tropical storm of the year, was deemed a tropical storm after hurricane hunter aircraft investigated the disturbance, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Bret is expected to move along South America in the coming days, impacting islands near Trinidad and Tobago in the next 24 hours, according to Bay News 9.
The storm however, is expected to weaken, though Florida could see some moisture from Bret later next week, according to Bay News 9.
