As of July 17, 2017,  at 2 p.m EDT, a pre-tropical disturbance east of South America and the Caribbean’s Lesser Antilles chain was being given by the NHC a 50-percent chance of tropical cyclone formation within 48 hours. At the same time, a second disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean about mid-way between Africa and South America was being given a 20-percent chance of tropical cyclone formation within 48 hours.
