The climate of Bermuda (United
Bermuda is located in the North Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of
America. Bermuda consists of the islands of Saint George, Saint David,
Somerset and Bermuda which is also known as Main Island. The capital
of this archipelago is Hamilton. The islands have a total population
of almost 70,000. Bermuda is known for the Bermuda Triangle which is
situated between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami. In this Triangle a
large number of ships disappeared in an inexplicable way. Bermuda is
known as a tax haven which is also the most important source of income
for the islands. Tourism is the second most important source of
income. Most tourists travel here to go diving or snorkeling between
the ship wrecks and the beautiful coral reefs. The headquarters of
Bacardi can be found in the capital Hamilton on Bermuda. St. George is
the largest and oldest city on Bermuda. The old city center is a
Unesco preservation site. Bermuda has a warm maritime climate strongly
influenced by the North Atlantic Ocean. The islands are warmed by the
warm Gulf Stream that passes by and the westerly winds that blow here.
These winds supply warm and moist air from the east. During the winter
winds may come from the polar region supplying extremely cold air with
temperatures around freezing point. When this occurs temperatures on
the islands may drop to 10 degrees Celsius (50.0 degrees Fahrenheit).
However, these extremes hardly ever occur. The coldest temperature on
record is 7.2 degrees Celsius (45.0 degrees Fahrenheit). During the
warmest part of the year humidity figures are high. During the second
part of the year there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes.
Because of its situation on the warm Gulf Stream hurricanes tend to
move toward Bermuda instead of passing the islands.
The figures below are based on long term weather and climate
records. They are an average for Bermuda.

Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of
the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time.
How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can
often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate
information per month. The figures below are for Bermuda. Please, note
that local deviations may occur.
