Our second tropical storm of 2020 has come and gone, but Bertha has brought heavy rain in its wake.  Bertha made landfall in South Carolina as a tropical storm on Wednesday.  It weakened quickly and lost its tropical characteristics while dropping lots of rain on the Carolinas and Virginia.  The remnants of Bertha were centered in West Virginia early on Thursday.  While maximum sustained winds were down to 25 miles per hour, heavy rain is still the main threat from this system until it dissipates over the Great Lakes late on Thursday.
