Tropical Storm Bertha stays away from eastern NC

Posted: Updated:

Hurricane Bertha has been downgraded back to a Tropical Storm Tuesday morning.
    
At 5 PM Tuesday, Tropical Storm Bertha has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and is moving toward the NNE at 21 mph.
    
The storm is moving over the open waters off the U.S. East Coast.
 
The official forecast track from the National Hurricane Center has Bertha moving northeastward over the open Atlantic Ocean and into the colder North Atlantic waters by Thursday.  As it moves over the chilly waters, Bertha will lose its tropical characteristics.

Tropical Storm Bertha will not have direct impacts to Eastern North Carolina; indirect impacts will continue with increased surf and rip current risks along the Crystal Coast and Outer Banks. Wave action and dangerous surf conditions from Bertha will subside late in the week.  Please stay with WNCT 9 First Alert Weather for even more forecast information on the tropics by clicking HERE.
