Another soaking yesterday


A stationary front to the east of Bermuda (the culprit for yesterday's rain) a trough to the north of Bermuda that could bring further rain tonight, and a cold front approaching the US East coast that should try to clear much of the troughiness in the western Atlantic away.
A stationary front to the east of Bermuda (the culprit for yesterday’s rain) a trough to the north of Bermuda that could bring further rain tonight, and a cold front approaching the US East coast that should try to clear much of the troughiness in the western Atlantic away.

A plume of tropical moisture ahead of and along a cold front brought patchy moderate rain with embedded heavier showers to the island for most of, if not all of the day Saturday. The cold front pushed through at around 2pm on Saturday when winds shifted from the south to the north-northwest, but light rain lingered behind the front. Rainfall totals from Saturday’s rain event were generally between 1.25 and 2.00″ around the island with the airport recording 1.93″ of rain.

With the frontal boundary now becoming stationary further to the east of the island, Sunday has seen much drier weather with northeasterly to easterly winds. These winds should remain moderate to strong at times for tonight and an increase in the chances for rain and showers will be introduced as a trough approaches from the north.  This trough should then stall to the south of the island bringing more settled weather for at least the second half of Monday and for much of Tuesday. After that point, a more concentrated area of low pressure may develop along the trough near Bermuda as the trough begins to lift northwards re-introducing unsettled weather to the island.
