Forecasters issued a small craft warning overnight that will remain in effect until Tuesday with wind speed from 20 to 33 knots and/or seas of 9 feet or greater expected in the marine area.

It’s all due to a cold front approaching the local area bringing strong winds overnight.

According to the Bermuda Weather Service: “Showery activity will steadily increase in advance of the front set to cross over us this afternoon with frequent showers and the chance for thunder.

“Gusty winds can also be expected as the front nears and passes over the island. Autumn like temperatures will develop on Tuesday and Wednesday while the area is generally dry.”

The forecast for Monday (November 2) says clouds will thicken bringing rain showers with a chance of thunder.

Winds are currently south-southwesterly and strong, “with gusts to gale force by late morning, veering northwesterly strong by late afternoon, easing moderate overnight”

The anticipated high today will be 78°, with a low near 65°

Winds will shift, becoming northwesterly and moderate, “backing west-northwesterly light to moderate” by Tuesday afternoon.

There is a chance of rain showers through to Thursday, when sunny skies are expected by Thursday afternoon. But winds are forecast to be “northeasterly moderate to strong, slowly veering east-northeasterly”.
