Looks to me like TD4 is getting some decent outflow, but still no define LLC or COC. Model projections are in general concurrance of it intensifying into a tropical storm -- only 5 mph more to go.

The CMC (Candian model) is no longer developing TD4 into anything, however it is developing the "Panama blob" into a low-level TS. Link To CMC short run ETA: AND something........ toward the east coast of Florida ... remenants of TD4? Just a note: It's been my experience that the CMC tends toward overdeveloping storms sometimes.

We'll see.

Going to have to watch this one. A degree or so more westerly and it could visit my area.

It's been several years since we had a good blow. There will be many downed trees and much damage as the last blow was Dora in the 60's.

We've had some come very close and had fairly high winds and much rain bit a hurricane full on would be disaster.

Our was evacuated a few years back and after all that trouble to pack up and spend hours inching along the interstate the hurricane veered and hit Charleston, SC.

I will not evacuate again. I might if the intensity is very high. lol

The latest advisory (the 5pm EST) from the National Hurricane Center says:

...DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK

DEPRESSION IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST NEAR 16 MPH...26
KM/HR. A CONTINUED MOTION TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST WITH A GRADUAL
INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 35 MPH...55 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. SOME STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS...
AND THE DEPRESSION COULD BECOME A TROPICAL STORM LATER TONIGHT OR
TUESDAY.

ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1006 MB...29.71 INCHES.

Evacuating might be a pain in the arse, but it is better than the alternative. Even though I do remember some friends of mine doing the dumbest thing ever down in Florida back in the 80's. When Hugo hit the Carolina's, we went surfing in Cocoa Beach.

However, I am now a lot older (doubtful on the wiser part, lol), and I lost a good friend of mine and fellow Vet during the Katrina storm. With that said, I hope that you never get hit by another Hurricane ever, but if you do, 'Choose wisely'.

Back to the main topic, there is another small disturbance that has only a 10% chance of forming, as it is too close to the continent of South America and the landmass is preventing further formation, despite good upper level conditions.

1. A TROPICAL WAVE LOCATED OVER THE FAR EASTERN CARIBBEAN SEA IS
PRODUCING AN AREA OF CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS OVER THE WINDWARD
ISLANDS AND THE ADJACENT WATERS. ALTHOUGH ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR SOME DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM...PROXIMITY TO
THE COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA IS EXPECTED TO INHIBIT SIGNIFICANT
DEVELOPMENT DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. THERE IS A LOW CHANCE...
10 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS.

Just a guess, of course, but if I lived or near Nova Scotia, I think I'd be keeping an eye on the remenants of Collin; The way the Bermuda High is set up (currently), I think there's a fair probability that an intensifying extra-tropical Collin could brush NS.

Great point. And Bermuda definitely should be watching closely. It's at a 70% chance of getting re-classified.

Yeah, Bermuda needs to keep a close eye on Colin, and we have another wave to track as well now:

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND...TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO SPREAD OVER
BERMUDA ON SATURDAY.

STORM SURGE...COLIN IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE COASTAL FLOODING AND
LARGE AND BATTERING WAVES IN BERMUDA...PARTICULARLY ALONG
SOUTH-FACING BEACHES.

RAINFALL...COLIN IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS
OF 3 TO 5 INCHES IN BERMUDA.

Definitely heating up out there.

Exactly. It has been helping a lot to keep everything nice and calm. But the water temperatures are really heating up now also. Just have to keep watching.

A LOW PRESSURE AREA LOCATED ABOUT 1100 MILES EAST-NORTHEAST OF THE
LEEWARD ISLANDS REMAINS FAIRLY WELL-DEFINED BUT THE ASSOCIATED
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY REMAINS LIMITED AND DISORGANIZED.
UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR A
TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS THE
LOW MOVES OVER WARMER WATER. THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE...70
PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES GENERALLY TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT 10
TO 15 MPH.

Two low pressure systems each with a 60% chance of development. However, the one far out in the Atlantic is headed towards an area that will make it more difficult to develop, while the one that just crossed over Florida is expected to have further development.
