Colin cranks it back up

Remember Colin? The tropical system that degenerated earlier this week into a remnant low pressure system?

Well, Colin cranked it back up Thursday, strengthening back into a tropical storm with sustained winds of 60 mph.

As of 11 p.m., Colin was tracking toward Bermuda, but was still 430 miles south-southwest from the British territory out in the Atlantic Ocean.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for Bermuda, meaning tropical storm-force winds could be in the area within 36 hours.

According to the National Weather Service, Colin is expected to pass just west of Bermuda on Saturday, but that just a slight deviation could bring the center of circulation over the island.

Tropical storm-force winds extend 105 miles from the center of circulation.

Some strengthening is forecast for Friday night and Saturday.
