A strengthening tropical depression was bearing down on Florida and the southeastern U.S. on Monday, with forecasters warning of strong winds and the potential for serious flooding from heavy rains.

The National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Colin was worsening as of 4 a.m. ET and moving towards Tampa Bay. It is expected to make landfall on Monday with winds of up to 50 mph.

As much as 8 inches of rain is forecast to fall across an area from Mexico's northeast Yucatan peninsula to western Cuba — and north to western Florida, eastern Georgia and coastal areas of the Carolinas.

"Every Florida family and visitor needs to prepare now," Governor Rick Scott said on Twitter.

The Georgia coast and the north Florida Atlantic coast were placed under a tropical storm watch Sunday evening.

With the possibility of 12-foot waves, the Coast Guard urged boaters to stay out of the water until Tuesday, NBC Miami reported. Authorities were distributing sandbags to residents in St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay, according to NBC station WBBH of Fort Myers.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm was moving Northeast at up to 15 mph.

"On this track, the center of Colin is forecast to approach the coast of the Florida Big Bend area [Monday] afternoon or evening, move across portions of Florida and southeastern Georgia early Tuesday morning, and move near the southeastern coast of the United States later on Tuesday," it said in an update.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicated that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph "with higher gusts," it added.

"Some additional slow strengthening is possible during the next 48 hours. The combination of a storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters," the center said.

Colin is the latest in a series of severe weather events across the country, from record-breaking heat in the West to flooding in Texas and storms that are expected to cause problems in the nation's capital and mid-Atlantic region.

Although the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season began five days ago, Colin is the third storm of the year.

NOAA Issues 2016 Hurricane Prediction
Published on May 27th, 2016
(May 27, 2016) – NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center says the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, will most likely be near-normal, but forecast uncertainty in the climate signals that influence the formation of Atlantic storms make predicting this season particularly difficult.
NOAA predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 10 to 16 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 4 to 8 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). While a near-normal season is most likely with a 45 percent chance, there is also a 30 percent chance of an above-normal season and a 25 percent chance of a below-normal season. Included in today’s outlook is Hurricane Alex, a pre-season storm that formed over the far eastern Atlantic in January.
“This is a more challenging hurricane season outlook than most because it’s difficult to determine whether there will be reinforcing or competing climate influences on tropical storm development,” said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “However, a near-normal prediction for this season suggests we could see more hurricane activity than we’ve seen in the last three years, which were below normal.”

Passed over central Florida in the night. Now heading up the Eastern Seaboard, staying off-shore. Might come back to land in the NYC area. Stay tuned.
