Bertha is currently located 70 miles Northeast of Barbados and is moving at 21 mph, packing maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.
Luckily, the predicted path shows that the U.S. mainland will not be impacted. Puerto Rico, on the other hand, isn't so lucky.
Tropical Storm warnings are in effect for Puerto Rico as well as surrounding islands, with heavy rain and tropical storm force gusts likely this weekend.
As Bertha continues moving northwest, it could bring some wind-driven rain to the Bahamas on Sunday night into Monday. As a result, there is also the possibility of strong rip currents in Florida by early next week.
Tropical Storm Bertha is not expected to strengthen into a hurricane and it will go out to sea before reaching the East Coast.
