Climate and Average Weather in Bermuda

Bermuda has a warm ocean climate. The location in the North Atlantic Ocean has a great influence on the climate. The islands are heated by the warm Gulf Stream and the westerly wind. These winds bring warm, humid air from the east towards the islands. However in winter winds from the arctic can bring extremely cold air, which can cause temperatures in the Bermuda Islands to drop to as low as 9 degrees Celsius (48 degrees Fahrenheit).

You have a chance of a rainstorm throughout the year. On an annual basis, there is about 1400-1500 millimeters (55 - 59 inch) of rain. April and May are slightly drier and August is slightly wetter than average. In summer, most rain falls at the end of the day. They can be short and intense. Not infrequently they are accompanied by thunderstorms.

Bermuda is in the hurricane zone, where hurricanes can occur during the hurricane season that runs from June to December. These types of severe tropical storms are luckily not happening every year since Bermuda is fairly northerly within the hurricane zone.

The best time to visit Bermuda is from April to July.
