The Barbados Meteorological Service has discontinued the warning issued for Tropical Storm Bertha.

The US-based National Hurricane Centre says the Met. Service has also discontinued warnings and watches for St Vincent and the Grenadines.

However, warnings remain in effect for St Lucia, Dominica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and the British Virgin Islands.

A tropical storm watch is also in effect for the eastern Dominican Republic.

At 11 am, the center of Tropical Storm Bertha was located near latitude 14.0 north, longitude 58.9 west.

Bertha is moving toward the west-northwest near 21 miles per hour and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days.

On the forecast track, Bertha is expected to pass north of Barbados during the next several hours and move through the central Lesser Antilles tonight, and approach the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico tomorrow.

The maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles mainly to the northeast of the center.
