Tropical Storm Colin forms in the Atlantic

By Phaedra Friend Troy

The third named storm of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Colin has formed in the Atlantic. 

Look to PennEnergy’s Global Offshore Weather Report daily to find out the most up-to-date wind, weather and wave information for the four busiest offshore regions worldwide.

Currently located about 840 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands, Tropical Storm Colin has sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. The Northern Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands are presently under a storm watch.

The National Hurricane Center advised that the storm is traveling to the west rapidly, with minimal change in strength.

Expected to turn to the west-northwest over the next few days, Tropical Storm Colin is neither expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico nor affect the US Atlantic coastal states.

Forecasted to be “extremely active,” the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season could potentially serve up to 23 named storms.

Although producers and drilling contractors curtailed operations in advance of Hurricane Alex and Tropical Storm Bonnie, the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season has not caused a long-lasting loss of production.
