Tropical Storm Colin weakened after bringing rain and wind to the Carolinas on Saturday, and conditions are expected to improve on July 4.

The storm formed near the coast of South Carolina, about 80 miles southwest of Myrtle Beach, the National Hurricane Center said in an advisory early Saturday.

Late Saturday night, Colin had weakened to a tropical depression, and forecasters dropped the tropical storm warning in effect for parts of the North Carolina coast.

At 11 p.m. Saturday, the storm’s center was about 24 miles north of Wilmington, North Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. It was moving northeast at 7 mph.

The storm is completely gone by Sunday night or Monday morning.

The storm formed hours after Tropical Storm Bonnie made landfall in Nicaragua, raising the threat of flooding from heavy rainfall.

Bonnie made landfall late Friday on the Caribbean coast of the Central American country, about 75 miles (75 km) south of Bluefields, the National Hurricane Center said.

Forecasters warned of the danger of significant flooding, with rains of up to 20 centimeters and even more in isolated places.

Authorities in Bluefields said they set up 50 temporary shelters before the storm arrived, and many of the 57,000 residents nailed boards to their windows.
