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.
