There could be a stray afternoon storm, but most locations will be dry and if there is a storm, it will be ending in time for all those firework shows across the area this evening.

All is quiet in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean for this July 2, 2017 tropical update. The formation of a tropical storm or depression in the next two days increased to 70 percent, and holds at 80 percent for formation in the next five days.

The retiring chief of the hurricane specialist unit at the National Hurricane Center in Miami says further cuts to tropical weather research will undermine recent improvements in hurricane intensity forecasts.

The system, which has remained stagnant 650 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, has disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

If Invest 94L becomes a tropical storm, it will be the fourth named Atlantic storm of the season - Don.

It's a bit unusual for Atlantic storms to form this early, as they usually pass through in August and September, forecasters say.

It should continue moving in that direction throughout the rest of the week, the NHC said.

Have a great and safe Independence Day!
