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.
