Tropical Storm Bertha stubbornly heads west

Tropical Storm Bertha, considered yesterday an almost certain fish-spinner, continues to head west, and her turn to the open Atlantic appears a bit delayed and a bit less severe than originally forecast.

Still, sea surface temperatures remain too cool for rapid intensification (mid-Atlantic buoy 41041 reports 79.52 degrees F), but she should hit warmer waters by Wednesday (80-82F). By that time, if she follows the official NHC forecast path, she will be approximately 1300 miles east-southeast of Miami. She is presently 2395 miles east-southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    @elbohemio: Thanks! I was thinking of your position there in PR as I was writing up this post. Looks like Bertha is going to track at least a couple hundred miles north of you all, but still too early to say for sure.
