The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami says that conditions appear to be favourable for gradual development of that system while it moves slowly northwestward toward the southern Gulf of Mexico by early next week.
Hurricane hunters said in an update Monday afternoon that Bret has a well-defined center and now considered a tropical storm.
Landfall somewhere along the Gulf Coast would likely be around Wednesday or Thursday, according to Accuweather.
The system's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 40 miles per hour.
A tropical storm warning was in effect for Intracoastal City, La., to the mouth of the Pearl River at the Louisiana-Mississippi border.

Supreme Court Will Hear Gerrymandering Case
Four justices - only Justice Clarence Thomas remains of that group - said it was not the court's business to make such decisions. The court will be pressed with the responsibility of deciding if partisan gerrymandering violates the Constitution.
This system is forecast to develop into a tropical storm on Monday. Tropical storm wind speeds range from 39 miles per hour to 73 miles per hour, according to the hurricane center. As Bret tracks west, it will interact with land and encounter wind shear, meaning it will weaken, and is likely to become post tropical by Wednesday evening.
Tropical Storm Watches and Warnings are in place along the coastline from east Texas across Louisiana.
Earlier on Monday, Tropical Storm Bret formed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Venezuela. This system is located in the central Atlantic about 700 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, moving swiftly to the west. The National Hurricane Center said there is a 90 percent chance of development over the next 48 hours. The threat is subject to change given the eventual path the storm decides to take.
In addition, large easterly swells of at least 5 to 6 metres (16 to 20 feet) are also forecasted to accompany the system. This is considered "Potential Tropical Storm Three".
Areas of rain and non-severe thundershowers will begin to cover more areas along and south of the I-20 corridor throughout the morning.
