Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, a disturbance moved eastward from North Carolina into the western Atlantic along an inactive stationary front. The disturbance strengthened, pushing the stationary front across Bermuda Wednesday morning with some thunderstorms and isolated downpours. Some parts of the island got near 0.50″ of rain, while others got nearly none. High pressure has since built in over the western Atlantic, to the near west of Bermuda. Light northerly flow on the eastern side of the high is bringing near normal temperatures and much less humid than normal but fair weather to Bermuda today.

High pressure should remain in control across Bermuda through Friday, shifting its position and orientation so that light winds become more southerly then southwesterly. A disturbance similar to the one earlier this week exists along the US east coast near Virginia. This may introduce some isolated showers to Bermuda on Saturday morning as a weak cold front associated with it dissipates nearby and strong High pressure to our north east extends a ridge southwestward.
