Tropical Storm Bertha

The second named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bertha made landfall on the coast of South Carolina this morning, and is tracking inland through North Carolina and Virginia. Bertha formed quickly off the South Carolina coast this morning, and made landfall an hour later; it is expected to weaken to a tropical depression this afternoon as it moves inland, and then become a remnant low tonight.

The circulation of Bertha remained compact yet well-defined through landfall, which occurred around 930 AM EDT near Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
