WEATHER

Back to green provided at the end of day

Saturday, August 2, 2014 - 12 h 32

The storm tropical Bertha moves away from Guadeloupe. But caution is still required, since heavy downpours are still scheduled during the day.

This Saturday morning, around 10:30, Tropical Storm Bertha continued to move away from Guadeloupe and Northern Islands. The phenomenon was heading Northwest in the direction of Puerto Rico. In fact, weather France provided for a lifting of the level of yellow vigilance and a return to the green at the end of the day, around 17 hours. In the meantime, caution remains. Heavy downpours accompanied by thunderstorms are still planned for the day.
During the night, gusts of wind of 92 km/h were observed at La Désirade, thus rainfaill reached between 100 and 150 mm on the relief of Basse-Terre. At sea, waves of 6 meters were observed. Datas that correspond to a tropical storm of average importance, analyzed weather France Raizet station.

That trough looks quite strong. Makes me thing Bertha will be completely absorbed by it.

A sonde about 9 minutes earlier recorded the wind (very brief gust) just before it hit the water as being 52mph.

The SFMR instrument on the plane at the time estimated the 10 second wind to be 51 to 52 mph.

I can't believe ATCF kept it as hurricane.

I personally would've went with the 65mph, given the last readings, nothing I've seen at least supports higher than that.

The last time both the A and B storms became hurricanes was 1992 (Andrew and Bonnie).

Given those SFMR, it is probably about 55-60 kt right now, but earlier flights supported hurricane intensity and new convection popped up in that spot, hence the NHC holding the intensity.

I wouldn't quite say that, last year's storms failed to even maintain convection properly most of the time, and this has managed to strengthen as well whereas last year's didn't for the most part.

As an aside, this peaked only 10kts lower than the strongest storm in the entirety of 2013.

This storm reached hurricane status in conditions that have been described as the most hostile ever seen in the basin for a system to develop so its been quite a achievement for Bertha. If conditions do become just a little more favourable who knows just what could spin up in the near future. :)
