Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 1, 2014 10:57 p.m. Bertha to Track Toward Puerto Rico Through Saturday Bertha will then aim on eastern Hispaniola and Puerto Rico toward dawn on Saturday. The worst of the wind and rain will move away from the Windward Islands Friday night. By Saturday, wind and rain will increase across the U.S. and British Virgin islands along with Puerto Rico. Heavy rainfall, enough to cause localized flooding, will impact these areas tomorrow. On average, most places will receive 1-3 inches of rain with some spots receiving 5 or 6 inches. Wind damage in the region should be widely-separated. A small storm surge of a couple of feet could hit the southern coast of Puerto Rico late Saturday. Bertha will move away from Puerto Rico and Hispaniola Saturday night after tracking in between the islands in the evening. Wind shear will continue to impact Bertha through early Saturday which will limit the potential for strengthening. As a result, Bertha should maintain strength as it heads westward. Bertha will track into the open waters of the western Atlantic Sunday into Monday as a tropical storm. No significant impact is forecast to the United States, but there could be some rough surf and an increased threat for rip currents early next week. Elsewhere across the basin, there are no imminent concerns for tropical development over the next couple of days. By Andy Mussoline, Meteorologist.
