Bret has weakened and is no longer a tropical system.

The storm remnants will continue westward in Nicaragua.

Tropical Storm Cindy is moving with winds of 60 miles per hour but will encounter hostile environmental conditions next week and weaken.

12 p.m. Update:

There are no big changes.

Tropical Storm Bret continues to weaken and continues to do so over the next 24 hours.

The strength of Tropical Cindy has held since that last update, but the storm is expected to interact with an area of vertical wind shear shortly, which will help weaken the storm.

Hurricane hunters will fly into Cindy later this afternoon to get a better grasp of the storm.
