Joyce was downgraded to a tropical rainstorm midday Friday after being named the 10th named storm of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season early Thursday.
The storm is forecast to continue tracking to the west-northwest across the Atlantic during the next several days. This forecast path means that it will most likely not hit any land in the next four days.
