Experts keep an eye on Colin; Lowcountry under heat advisory

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The National Hurricane Center is watching what is left of Tropical Storm Colin as it begins to show signs of becoming better organized and may be redeveloping.

Right now, the storm is located to the northeast of Puerto Rico. The Air Force Hurricane Hunters will investigate the storm later Thursday afternoon.

In the Lowcountry, another hot and muggy day is in store for Thursday. Highs will be back in the mid 90's by the afternoon.

The area is under a Heat Advisory from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Heat indexes should reach all the way up to 105-110 degrees and higher.

An isolated storm may pop up in a partly cloudy afternoon sky, but rain chances are less than 30 percent. Thursday night, a few clouds may linger, but overall, lows will be in the upper 70's to near 80 along the coast.

A higher chance of storms is in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, which will keep heat levels down slightly.
