The only impact on South Carolina by the once and, possibly, future Tropical Storm Colin should be a day of good waves for surfers.
The system lost its circulation late Tuesday and was downgraded from tropical storm status by the National Hurricane Center. Its about 150 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands, where unfavorable upper level winds should inhibit strengthening.
The National Hurricane Center gives the system a 20 percent chance of reforming into a tropical storm as it curves north-northwest over the next few days. Its not expected to strengthen to hurricane status as it stays well offshore in the Atlantic.
Long-range surf forecasts for the South Carolina coast expect the remnants of Colin to push up 3-4 foot waves Sunday or Monday.
