Is Colin Coming Back to Life?

The remnants of Tropical Storm Colin look pretty healthy on satellite this morning. While the system does not have a center of circulation at this time, it still likely to be producing tropical storm force winds.
The National Hurricane Center give the tropical wave a 50% chance to develop that center of circulation and become Tropical Storm Colin again. That could happen later today or tomorrow.
Even if Colin redevelops, it should track away from the North Carolina coast. A look at some of the tropical model tracks posted below (courtesy of Colorado State University) shows Colin tracking closer to Bermuda this weekend and away from the East Coast. The only potential impact on North Carolina will be an increased risk for rip currents this weekend at the beaches.
