HOURS. LITTLE CHANGE IN INTENSITY IS EXPECTED WHILE

ISSUED BY THE TROPICAL PREDICTION CENTER UNDER AWIPS HEADER
TWOAT AND WMO HEADER ABNT2O KNHC FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR
REINTENSIFICATION  IF BERTHA REEMERGES OVER THE GULF COASTAL
WATERS.

PRESSURE IS 1011 MB. NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN STRENGTH IS EXPECTED
IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS.
