A wave that has been far out in the Atlantic for a few days now has a 60 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression, or Tropical Storm Colin, by Tuesday morning, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday.
The storm has been nearly stationary, but now is moving west at 5 to 10 mph, the weather service said.
It's about 850 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, which would put it about 3,000 miles east of Palm Beach. And there is lots of warm water in front of it.
It's so far away that, even if it came right at us, and didn't do a million things storms can do, including go ``poof,'' it wouldn't be a threat to the North American coast for several days.
