For those regular viewers of my video, I apologize for the low number of videos this week. There have been a number of computer issues in the weather office to battle. Hopefully a regular schedule resumes next week.
Parts of the CLT metro have seen over 4" of rain over the past 24 hours, and many spots around the region as a whole have seen over an inch or two. The pattern will remain unsettled through the weekend with some showers and storms at times.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Bertha has formed and will move through the Lesser Antilles over the next 24 hours. From there, a bend to the NW is likely, and Berth will likely be located a little east of the Bahamas early Monday morning as a tropical storm.
From there, a turn to the north and northeast is likely. I still can't rule out a threat to the East Coast, but odds are favoring an offshore track. Stay tuned.
