The threat from Tropical Storm Colin to coastal Georgia is over, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Hurricane Center’s 8 a.m. update has the center of the storm about 220 miles east-northeast of Savannah, moving to the northeast at 33 mph.

The tropical storm warning has been canceled for all of coastal Georgia.

“Tropical Storm Colin will continue to move away from the region this morning,” the Weather Service’s latest advisory says. “No additional impacts are expected.”

Skies are still cloudy over Bryan County, but the sun has peeked through at least once, and the clouds are expected to dissipate over the next few hours. The forecast over the next several days calls for mostly clear skies with highs in the low 90s and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Hunter Army Airfield received about 3 inches of rain from the tropical storm by early Tuesday.
