MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Tropical Storm Dolly made landfall south of Tampico, Mexico, late Tuesday, producing drenching downpours in coastal and mountainous regions of the country.  The storm is dissipating and no longer being tracked as a tropical entity.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, there are a couple of sources of moisture in the far southwestern Caribbean, and over the Bahamas, which is associated with an upper-level low-pressure circulation.  It's highly unlikely that either of these will transform into organized tropical cyclones in the next few days.

The open waters between western Africa and the Lesser Antilles are uneventful, with a considerable amount of dry and dusty air present in the zone which will inhibit storm formation.
