Tropical Storm Colin: Charley's Replacement

Six years ago in August 2004 ferocious category 4 Hurricane Charley barreled into southwest Florida, producing severe damage as it made landfall near Port Charlotte. The strongest U.S. landfalling hurricane (at that time) since Andrew, Charley was retired from the rotating list of Atlantic tropical cyclone names, only to be replaced by Colin in 2010.

Learn more about Tropical Storm Colin's projected path and find out what else is brewing in the Atlantic Basin, and what it means for the weeks ahead when you tune into this episode of The Weathervein!
