Tropical Storm Colin forms in the Gulf

- The National Hurricane Center says that Tropical Storm Colin has formed in the Gulf of Mexico and is predicted to land in Florida.
 
Forecasters upgraded the storm from a tropical depression to a tropical storm just before 6 p.m. Sunday. That means Colin has sustained winds of at least 39 mph.
 
The storm is expected to dump flooding rains on Florida's Gulf coast when it hits on Monday before quickly passing through to the Atlantic.
