ORLANDO, Fla. — The National Hurricane Center is no longer tracking Tropical Storm Colin after the storm dissipated over eastern North Carolina early Sunday morning.

The NHC announced that the storm was losing organization during the 5 p.m. advisory on Saturday. It was announced that the storm had weakened to a tropical depression at 10:30 p.m.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms may impact coastal North Carolina Sunday. The NHC said that most areas will see less than an inch of additional rainfall. Rough surf and rip currents are likely to continue on the North Carolina coast through Sunday evening.

Colin formed from a tropical disturbance that spun off Florida’s east coast on June 30, traveling up past Georgia and South Carolina.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bonnie, which originated in the Atlantic Ocean, continues to strengthen with possible heavy rains across parts of El Salvador, Guatemala and southern Mexico during the next several days.

 

“This rainfall could could cause some instances of flash flooding and mud slides throughout the region,” the NHC said.

The center of Tropical Storm Bonnie is forecast to stay offshore.
