March 4, 2018 | 3 Comments

[Updated] The less than welcoming weather conditions are forecast to continue, with the Bermuda Weather Service issuing another Storm Warning, this one valid from late Monday afternoon through Monday evening.

In addition, a Gale Warning is valid this morning through Monday afternoon, and then again from Monday night until Tuesday morning. The previous Storm Warning was in effect for Saturday, however that was discontinued last night, with the Gale Warnings remaining.

A look at the weather conditions early yesterday morning:

Monday’s weather forecast says, “Mostly cloudy, showers, risk afternoon/evening thunder and hail. Winds northwesterly strong to gale force gusts to gale force to storm force, increasing gale force to storm force gusts to storm force late afternoon and evening, easing strong to gale force gusts to storm force late evening then strong to gale force overnight.”

In their forecast discussion, BWS forecaster Gary Hall said, “A sharp trough will extend westward from the departed strong low and close off into a secondary surface low supported by an upper low that will move through very fast on Monday afternoon into the evening.

“This will be the strongest wind surge we will see from the entire past few days as it is packing a lot of vorticity and cold air,” Mr Hall added.

    Be nice to your pool technician. A hurricane usually blows through in a few hours. This is sustained gale force winds with storm force gusts for a week.

    All the crops around the island destroyed.

    Then the docks are going to close, another two weeks?!
