Bret is currently a tropical storm with winds of 45 miles per hour. Central pressure is at 1000 millibars. Bret is currently moving North Northeast at 7 MPH.
Bret is now forecast to weaken quicker than originally thought. At this time, Bret is expected to weaken on Friday, probably by evening, below tropical depression status. Bret will supposedly lose tropical storm status sometime on Thursday.
Ensemble and intensity forecasts indicate Bret will lose his tropical storm attributes more slowly. However, Bret has always been a weak storm and on the small side, so I believe the NHC does have a good forecast for Bret at this time.
