Overnight Sunday into Monday morning, showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain slowly pushed into the region ahead of a cold front that became stationary to the near northwest of Bermuda. Locally heavy rains accumulated as much as 5inches, mainly in some of the central and western parishes. Generally, rainfall totals from this system were 2.00-4.00″ around Bermuda. This again led to flash flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas around Bermuda this morning.  A new low pressure moving eastward south of Nova Scotia allowed the front to clear away to the east of the island this afternoon with some lingering patchy light rain in the area now. Drier cooler weather should settle in tomorrow as high pressure slides in from the west with light to moderate northerly winds as the high approaches.

This high pressure center is expected to continue past Bermuda on Tuesday allowing winds to become light and variable. Winds then settle out of the southeast increasing light to moderate early Wednesday morning. Some form of today’s front begins to return northwards Wednesday night into Thursday bringing a renewed chance for showers and potentially thunderstorms.
