The remnants of Bertha will pass close to Cape Race, Newfoundland, on Thursday.
Berth transitioned from a tropical storm to a non-tropical system on during the day on Wednesday.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, "A brief period of rain and locally gusty winds are possible over southern and eastern Newfoundland on Thursday morning as the system passes by."
Building seas on Thursday will make it rough enough that small craft should remain in port. Seas will however subside quickly on Friday.
The remnants of Bertha is forecast to drift eastward across the North Atlantic this weekend and will reach Europe.
As Bertha's remnants pass southeast of St. Johns, Newfoundland, on Thursday. A few gusts between 50 and 70 kph (30 and 45 mph) are possible along the coast and in higher elevations in the southeastern part of the province.
Disruptive winds at mid-levels of the atmosphere, known as wind shear will keep the system rather disorganized.
Bertha has been moving along at a brisk pace since its birth last week. This forward speed will increase as the system turns more to the northeast during the second half of the week, while encountering strong steering winds.
Any flooding problems should be relatively minor and brief due to the storm's swift movement.
"Interests on Newfoundland should treat Bertha as a short-lived, nor'easter," Anderson said.
