The Saint Lucia Meteorological Services has announced the formation of Tropical Depression Three over the Central Tropical Atlantic.

As a result, the Met Office has advised interests in the Lesser Antilles to monitor the system’s progress.

Weather experts say the system will likely intensify into Tropical Storm Bret over the next day, approaching or impacting the Lesser Antilles as a hurricane by the weekend.

And the United States-based National Hurricane Center expects it to move across the Lesser Antilles as a hurricane on Thursday and Friday, with a risk of flooding from heavy rainfall, hurricane-force winds, and dangerous storm surge and waves.
