Default Bertha....

I wonder which way she will go? It's still too early to tell but it's worth keeping an eye on, especially those of us on the east coast.

Too early to really know for sure. Right now, according to Dr. Jeff Masters:
A threat to the East Coast of the U.S. is now possible, with such an event most likely to occur about ten days from now. It is also possible that high wind shear will tear apart Bertha (as predicted by the ECMWF model), or that the storm will recurve to the north just east of North Carolina, missing the U.S. The long range track of Bertha is highly uncertain, and it is too early to speculate how likely each of these scenarios is.
Definitely something to pay attention to....

The five forecast shows that might stay away from the USA, but anything is possible.

It sure is a small compacted storm and moving fast across the Atlantic. It's expected to slow down in a few days. At the 11 am advisory the winds are still at 50mph. The Weather Channel has it curving towards Bermuda and missing the mainland. I still think it's too early to tell if it will make that curve or not.

The fish are currently putting up their shutters and collecting extra water and food.

Not a U.S. storm is my prediction from the information I can see. Just a fish storm

the stronger the storm gets the more the very rare chance of it breaking through the steer go. At this point its probably a 90% chance it turns but it also wasn't supposed to intensify this quickly so things are ever changing. The bamm model is actually predicting that and taking it towards the bahamas. hmm. If that was the case I don't see anything else to turn it northward later in the week so it would head for south florida but this all is probably moot as it will probably start turning tonight.
