DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 200 AM EDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Colin was
located near latitude 30.2 North, longitude 82.6 West. Colin is
moving toward the northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h). A continued
northeastward motion at a faster forward speed is expected over the
next 48 hours. On the forecast track, the center of Colin will
move across northern Florida and southeastern Georgia for the next
few hours, and then move near or over the southeastern coast of the
United States later today. However, it's important to note that
the strongest winds and heaviest rains are well removed from the
Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft
indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with
higher gusts. These winds are occurring mainly over the Atlantic
waters well to the east of the center. Some strengthening is
forecast after Colin moves into the Atlantic later today.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
RAINFALL: Colin is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 3 to 6
inches with isolated maximum totals of 10 inches across western to
northern Florida, southeast Georgia, and coastal areas of the
Carolinas through Tuesday.
STORM SURGE: The combination of a storm surge and the tide will
cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
waters. The water could reach the following heights above ground if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
Indian Pass to Tampa Bay...1 to 3 ft with slightly higher amounts
possible in a few locations.
Tampa Bay south to Florida Bay...1 to 2 ft.
Localized coastal flooding and dangerous surf are possible along the
Atlantic coast from Florida to North Carolina within the tropical
storm warning area.
The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast.
Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge
and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For
information specific to your area, please see products issued by
your local National Weather Service forecast office.
WIND: Tropical storm conditions will continue across portions of the
warning area along the west coast of the Florida peninsula for the
next several hours. Tropical storm conditions are likely occurring
over portions of the warning area along the Atlantic coast of
Florida, and these conditions will spread northward and
northeastward over the remainder of the warning area through
the remainder of today.
TORNADOES: A tornado or two will remain possible across parts of
central and northeast Florida early tonight, and perhaps near
coastal areas of Georgia and the Carolinas overnight.
