Tropical Depression Four has formed far east in the open Atlantic Ocean, as it now has a closed circulation at the surface. This center is moving west-northwest at 17 mph with maximum sustained winds at 35 mph. This depression could strengthen some in the next day or so, becoming Tropical Storm Colin. No landmasses are threatened at this time or in the near future. By Saturday, the system should be somewhere southwest of Bermuda and northeast of the Bahamas. This far in advance, it is simply too soon to say whether the storm will impact the U.S. Atlantic Coastline, but with a track to the west-northwest, it will be watched!
