Tropical Storm Bertha Forms in the Atlantic

Last night, the low pressure being monitored for the past several days developed into the second tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bertha.

Bertha will reach Barbados and the Lesser Antilles through today and could bring as much as 6" of rain for the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands today and tomorrow.

The forecast track brings the path of Bertha close to the US mainland before turning the storm before making landfall.
