PALMETTO COAST SPARED …

After getting doused with rain on Monday, South Carolina appears to be in line for little more than a glancing blow from Tropical Storm Colin on Tuesday.

If that …

The third named system of the 2016 Hurricane season, Colin is speeding out to sea further and faster than forecasters originally expected, rapidly losing its tropical status in the process.

“Satellite and surface observations indicate that Colin’s circulation is becoming less defined and Colin could lose its status as a tropical cyclone by this afternoon,” an 8:00 a.m. EDT update from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida noted.

The center of Colin is currently located forty-five miles south of Wilmington, North Carolina.  And while the storm is still packing maximum sustained winds of fifty miles per hour (with stronger gusts), it is racing toward the northeast at 33 miles per hour – a speed that’s expected to increase as the day goes on.

That will keep the system well off the South Carolina coast.

Given Colin’s current trajectory, all tropical storm warnings for South Carolina have officially been lifted.

Good news …
