Everything Else...
10:26 AM EDT - 21 August 1999

Other than Hurricane Bret (Which is definately the big story now), there are other things in the tropics.

Tropical Storm (Soon to be Hurricane) Cindy continues moving west. Whether or not it meanders north soon or not is definately up for debate. We should be watching this one, yet it's still quite a ways off.

An interesting Tropical Wave northeast of the lesser Antilles is grabbing our attention now. Some models develop this and put it close to the SE US. Development won't be immediate we think.

A tropical wave is emerging off the African coast, and we may have that to watch as well.
With Bret and the rest, the tropics are hot right now.

The Tropics are Red Hot!

What about that collection of thunderstorms near Cuba? ARe those outflow from Brett or is that just a coincidental mass. IT looks impressive on the satellites and no one is mentioning it. Also, for you experts or smarter watchers, how strong is that guiding high for Bret? Is it strong enough to influence a cat 3 storm?

Very good eye.

On closer look at that system it didn't seem all to favorable. The amount of activity down there, however is impressive. In this type of environment anything is possible.

Could we have 3 or 4 systems to track at one time?
