(Reuters) - Tropical storm Bertha is moving north-northeastward well offshore of the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

The storm, located about 415 miles (665km) northwest of Bermuda, is likely to become a post-tropical or extra-tropical cyclone on Wednesday, the NHC said.
