Tropical Storm Warnings Expanded as Colin Moves Closer

Sunday 11 pm Update: Tropical Storm Warnings were expanded to include much of inland North Florida, the First Coast and Space Coast. There were no significant changes to Tropical Storm Colin's strength or forecast track. Hurricane Hunters are on their way back out to investigate a possible shift or reformation of the cyclone's center. At the present time, this shift is not expected to significantly alter the potential impacts.  We have updated our map below, and this is followed by official National Hurricane Center information.


Potential Impacts-FPBS




Sunday 6 pm Update: Hurricane Hunters found winds just over 40 mph on their last pass through. At 5:30 pm EDT, the National Hurricane Center announced that Tropical Storm Colin had formed in the Southern Gulf of Mexico. The storm is still forecast to move toward the Big Bend of Florida late Monday and move across the state through early Tuesday. Tropical Storm Watches have also been issued from the Altamaha Sound to the Flagler and Volusia County line. This includes the Jacksonville metro area.  All previous warnings are still in affect.


Original Story: The National Hurricane Center began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Three near the Yucatan Peninsula Sunday morning. The storm is likely to become a tropical storm and move across Florida late Monday. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued from Indian Pass to Englewood and include the Nature Coast and Tampa metro areas. The primary hazards with this storm will be isolated tornadoes, heavy rain and possible flooding, and minor wind damage.
