Tropical Depression 3 formed in the mid-Atlantic on the morning of Monday, June 19, and strengthened to tropical storm status later that day.

“While June is rare, it’s not entirely unheard of for storms to form in the south-central Atlantic,” said AccuWeather Tropical Meteorologist Alex DaSilva.

Brett is expected to intensify as a hurricane and move across the Lesser Antilles on Thursday, June 22 and Friday, June 23, according to the National Hurricane Center.

It will bring torrential rain, hurricane-force winds, dangerous storm surges and flooding risks from surf.

“Given the greater than usual uncertainty in track projections, it is too early to determine the likely location and intensity of these hazards,” the National Hurricane Center said. “However, everyone in the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands All should pay close attention to updates to the Brett forecast and make their hurricane plans.”
