Bertha not very organized

Bertha not very organized

By FOX 4 News . CREATED Aug 1, 2014 - UPDATED: Aug 2, 2014

At 11pm, Tropical Storm Bertha is just over 1000 miles from Southwest Florida, with winds at 45 mph, moving NW at 22 mph.  Bertha is now barely a Tropical Cyclone, and may get less organized over the next 36 hours, as it interacts with dry air, and the land mass of Hispaniola. 

If it does hold together, it will turn more north by the start of next week, and the official forecast has Bertha becoming a minimal hurricane as it passes by the Carolina coastline on Wednesday.

This system should not impact Southwest Florida.
