The only impact on South Carolina by the once and, possibly, future Tropical Storm Colin should be a day of good waves for surfers.

The system lost its circulation late Tuesday and was downgraded from tropical storm status by the National Hurricane Center. It's about 150 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands, where unfavorable upper-level winds should inhibit strengthening.

The National Hurricane Center gives the system a 20 percent chance of reforming into a tropical storm as it curves north-northwest over the next few days. It's not expected to strengthen to hurricane status as it stays well offshore in the Atlantic. Long-range surf forecasts for the South Carolina coast call for the remnants of Colin to push up 3- to 4-foot waves Sunday or Monday.
