    Joyce Weakens to a Tropical Rainstorm

    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.

    While Joyce is expected to remain northeast of the Leeward Islands next Monday, there could be some periphery impacts, such as showers and higher surf.

    Dry air and strong wind shear (disruptive winds above the surface) forced Joyce to lose its tropical storm status.

    Farther down the road, Bermuda should keep a close eye on the potential for Joyce to approach the island.
