HAMILTON (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Colin weakened to a tropical depression in the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday as it passed west of Bermuda, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said, adding the system could dissipate later in the day.

Colin became the third named storm of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season last week, but had already downgraded once before to a tropical depression on its faltering trajectory out in the Atlantic, staying away from the U.S. East Coast.

The Miami-based NHC said the depression now had maximum sustained winds near 35 miles per hour as it passed about 45 miles west of the Atlantic island of Bermuda, a British overseas territory that is a center for the global insurance industry.
