Wet and windy weather to continue until Thursday
Stormy weather hit the island yesterday with heavy rain and strong winds throughout the morning and early afternoon.
More than an inch of rain fell at the Bermuda Weather Service site in St George’s between 3am and 3pm.
The strongest sustained winds reached 34.5mph, but there were gusts of up to 52mph recorded at the airport and other sites around the island.
Michelle Pitcher, the BWS deputy director, said: “As we are in the autumn season, we do tend to see an increase in frontal activity in the area as well as lingering systems as we continue to transition towards winter.
“Lingering moisture to our south that was left from last Saturday's showers and thunderstorms was drawn back up into our area and enhanced by a deepening low pressure system moving off the US mid-Atlantic coast.“
Ms Pitcher said that a cold front would pass through the area this afternoon and predicted it would remain windy with a few showers until tomorrow.
She added that the island was expected to get a “brief respite from active weather” on Friday and Saturday before another low pressure system from the US East Coast increased winds on Saturday night and probably into Sunday.
Ms Pitcher said the weather service did not collect information on flooding.
But she added: “Surmising that with the amount of precipitation we have received today, the ‘usual’ places that flood would likely to have experienced flooding.”
