T.S. Colin Becomes A Remnant Low

interactive tracking map

Tropical Storm Colin has been downgraded to a remnant area of low pressure.

At 5:00 pm the remnants of Colin are located at 15.8 north and 53.8 west and moving west-northwest at 35 mph, with a central pressure of 1006 millibars. This is the last advisory on Colin from the National Hurricane Center.

The current forecast tracks the storm several hundred miles off the North Carolina coastline this weekend, with the track turning further out to sea early next week. The storm is currently not expected to strengthen to hurricane strength. The forecast track and strength can, and usually do change and will need to be watched closely through the upcoming weekend.

The current track is good news for the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico; the storm is expected to avoid that area altogether as BP gets closer to killing the broken well.

Stay tuned to WITN and WITN.COM for all the latest on the storm.

    Jim Catore is booking flights...I am sure we will all be honkering down soon...extra light raincoats for effect...about as exciting as watching ants eat a bug.

    Time to get the hoard of reporters to the Outer Banks, so they can stand with the wind blowing into the microphone, telling us about the wind gusts, and looking stupid, while gawking at the NC 12 highway sign twisting in the breeze. Now that's newsworthy!

    Have a place downeast and just paid my wind, hail, fire, flood, and homeowner policies. Hope it stays away, but if it comes ashore I'm covered. One good thing about hurricanes, you do have some advanced notice and time to prepare.

    LOL, Snake Oil and Over...We've dodged the hurricane bullet for a few years now...hope our luck holds out. Last one I rode out was with Phillip and the Channel 9 boys back before the HD conversion. Next one will be with Marvin and the WITN crew...Skip's too "excitable" to suit me. Sad thing is that I probably won't be able to watch anybody unless I go get a converter box. Since I added the local channels to my dish setup, even a strong rain causes the channel to go off the air. Now that's a conspiracy!

    now, Marvin, on the other hand, is a good ole boy from my neighborhood. And i'm proud to claim him! He's one of the good weather forecasters.

    Ah, i see. i've lived in ENC all my life, and have seen Skip through the years. He tends to really get excited over nothing. "Run for the hills" is what I've gleaned from his predictions....every time.

    Hi Bunny: I've lived in onslow county since 1981 to date and Bunny a meteorologist using his best guess is costly and for me Ole Skippys personal prediction's have caused me to prepare for nothing(not any more). Among my coworkers, well he's given us a lot of laughs.

    What has Skip got to do with money?
