Tropical Storm Bertha innocently passes by

By Meteorologist Mike Skurko

A disorganized and quickly weakening Tropical Storm Bertha will make its closest pass by New England on Wednesday, but it will have no effect on the weather around the region.  It was briefly upgraded to category 1 hurricane status (74-82 mph), but was downgraded early Tuesday morning as it passed by the Carolinas.  The orange shaded area inside the yellow line represents the storm’s tropical storm force wind field of at least 39 mph, with maximum winds estimated near 50 mph.

While the storm has no impacts on the weather, it will impact the surf.  The National Weather Service has issued a Rip Current Statement for ocean-facing beaches along the southern New England Coast.
