A center of low pressure has developed to the south of Bermuda overnight and is slowly headed northwards. Intermittent rain and showers have moved in with strong winds out of a generally easterly direction. Expect rain and showers with a chance for some showers to be squally and/or with thunder to continue today. Winds should become unstable shifting from its current easterly direction, clockwise through to settle in a southwesterly-westerly direction as a center of low pressure passes near or overhead.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring this area for sub-tropical or tropical cyclone development. But their thoughts as of 9am (Bermuda Time) are that it only has a low 10% chance for transitioning into one of these types of cyclones in the next 48hours and 5 days. Regardless of this transition, this area of low pressure should produce similar impacts in its current form as an extra-tropical cyclone.
