Tropical Storm Colin

Tropical Storm Colin broke the record of the earliest third named storm within the Atlantic basin by seven days. The previous record was set in 1887.  Colin developed from a low pressure area over the Gulf of Mexico near the northern coast of the Yucatán Peninsula late on June 5. On June 6, Colin curved to the north-northeast and picked up speed. Sanibel and Captiva experienced the greatest impact from Colin on June 6th and Colin passed approximately 320 miles west of the islands.
