After yesterday morning’s cold front with associated strong thunderstorms that left over an inch (and a half – in some places!) of rain across Bermuda, high pressure is building in from the west. As the front pulled away and high pressure began to build last night and today, a stiff northerly breeze kicked in blowing in cooler (below normal), less humid air from the Maritime Canadian Provinces and New England. As high pressure settles in, winds should shift to the west and south west allowing temperatures to return to near normal levels.
As a characteristic of high pressure, this system should bring fair and settled weather to the island while in control. Expect this area of high pressure to stay in control through Saturday when a front approaches from the north and northwest. At this time, it is uncertain whether this front will push through Bermuda on Sunday, but it appears that the front could be close enough, and the area of high pressure weakens enough by then for there to be a chance for some showers.
