Mostly dry for the next couple of days as we head into Independence Day.

The National Hurricane Center says a tropical disturbance in the central Atlantic has a high chance of forming in its 8 a.m. Tuesday update.

A almost stationary broad area of low pressure located, about 650 miles (1,046km) west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

A tropical low is in the deep tropics now has a 70% chance of developing over the next 5 days into a tropical depression or Tropical Storm Don.

"Tropical cyclone" is a phrase used to describe a tropical depression, storm or hurricane that forms in the Atlantic Ocean. As it moves to the west around 10 miles per hour, it is expected to encounter favorable conditions for development. Of course, each day will bring the threat for showers and storms mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. This year's hurricane season, which has been forecast to be busier than average, has already seen three tropical storms, Arlene, Bret, and Cindy.

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