Tropical Depression #3 forms in the Gulf of Mexico and is forecast to track northeastward towards the Florida coast on Monday.
It will likely strengthen into Tropical Storm Colin by this evening according to the First Alert Weather App.
The app also shows Tropical Storm Warnings in effect from Panama City and down the Florida coast to Sarasota.
A Tropical Storm Warning means that sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph are expected within 36 hours. Besides wind, flooding rain and tornadoes will also be possible.
Alabama will be spared because of a cold front tracking southeastward and the jet stream steering the storm northeastward.
Keep up with the latest track, strength and impacts through the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
