This year has been slow so far in terms of tropical development (and an update from the NHC will likely have them downgrading their forecast this morning) but that doesn’t mean we’ll have a dud of a year. We’re still early in the season, with the peak not reached until mid-September.
Both Bonnie and Colin werely BARELY Tropical storms when they were declared storms by the NHC. They also both fell apart quickly. But Colin appears to have some signs of life and may be RE-classified a Tropical Storm soon.
“Colin” will not make landfall on the U.S. coast but it will impact your trip to the beach if you’re headed that way this weekend. Look for big waves at the coast– and give those surfers plenty of room!
