The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, “At 200 PM EDT [1800 UTC], the center of Tropical Storm Colin was located near latitude 33.6 North, longitude 79.0 West. Colin is moving toward the northeast near 7 mph [11 km/h].

“A slightly faster northeast to east-northeast motion is expected during the next day or two. On the forecast track, the center of Colin is expected to move northeastward along or just inland of the South Carolina and North Carolina coasts through Sunday morning, and then emerge over the western Atlantic Ocean late Sunday.

“Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph [65 km/h] with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so, but Colin is expected to dissipate by early Monday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles [130 km] mainly southeast of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1014 mb [29.94 inches].”
