Take note of the National Hurricane Center's remarks (from Aug 4 Tropical Weather Outlook) that “THERE IS A LOW CHANCE…20 PERCENT…OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE AGAIN DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 20TO 25 MPH.”
Less than 2 hours after the above was issued, new visible satellite imagery seems to indicate that Colin may indeed be back with a closed circulation and approaching tropical storm status again. In addition, the same satellite images show more of a northwest motion. There is a more favorable environment for Colin to strengthen in a day or two. REGARDLESS, Colin appears to threaten possibly Bermuda, but otherwise remain in the open Atlantic.
