POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE COLIN DISCUSSION NUMBER  10
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL032016
500 PM EDT TUE JUN 07 2016

Colin is now being analyzed as a fully extratropical cyclone with
frontal features.  The gusty winds and rainfall has cleared the
coast of North Carolina; therefore this will be the final NHC
advisory on this system.  The low's intensity remains 50 kt, which
is in agreement with an earlier ASCAT pass that showed a large area
of 40-45 kt winds well to the southeast of the center.  The
extratropical cyclone will likely deepen tonight due to baroclinic
energetics, but gradual weakening is forecast to begin on Wednesday
while the low moves over the North Atlantic.  The forecast
intensities and wind radii are based on guidance provided by the
Ocean Prediction Center.

The cyclone is racing northeastward at about 35 kt, and this
general motion is expected to continue during the next day or so.
After that time, the low should decelerate as it moves moves around
a couple of larger extratropical lows over the North Atlantic.

This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center
on Colin.  Future information on this system can be found in High
Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS
header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and available on the Web
at http://www.opc.ncep.noaa.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.
