A tropical cyclone is forecasted to bring rain to the East Coast and could cancel some 4th of July fireworks.
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring the first tropical depression in the Atlantic for 2014.
Current forecasts bring the system to tropical storm strength later today and hurricane strength early Friday morning.
The tropical cyclone will come close to the coastline, bringing high waves and rain as it tracks up the coast.
On the 4th of July, the forecast calls for a weak category 1 hurricane just east of the Mid-Atlantic that could impact travel and bring rain to the region in addition to a cold front from the west.
Luckily, the rain should move offshore for Saturday.
