Big Bertha: A Bad Omen? – Capital Weather Gang

Big Bertha: A Bad Omen? – Capital Weather Gang
After explosive development yesterday, Hurricane Bertha is struggling today. Its maximum winds have dropped from 120 mph last night to 105 mph as of 11 a.m. and it has been downgraded to a category two storm. Positioned 660 miles east northeast of the northern Leeward islands, track models now generally project Bertha will continue heading to the northwest and then north — most likely well east of Bermuda. As Bertha moves into cooler waters on its journey north, it should continue to slowly weaken.

While it remains to be seen whether Bertha will affect any land areas, it will go down in history as a record-breaking storm and may be a harbinger of a very active hurricane season.
