UPDATE: TS Colin dissipated today over eastern North Carolina, less than 24 hours after it officially formed. Those of you who live along the East Coast will probably not be surprised to hear that TS Colin formed overnight just off the coast of South Carolina. The tropical low that Colin formed from has crept along the coast from Florida to the north over the past couple of days, and tropical storm watchers were wondering when the National Hurricane Center would declare it to be a named storm. That finally occurred last night. Colin is expected to continue to move along the coast to the northeast. The biggest impacts will be some mostly beneficial rain for coastal areas along with some gusty winds and some high waves right along the coast. If you are celebrating the holiday weekend in that area, you should keep an eye on local conditions and forecasts from the National Weather Service to make sure you and your family and pets stay safe.
