Climate

Bermuda has a mild subtropical climate, with no wet season so it is an all year destination. Probably the best time to visit is July to September though when the temperatures are highest.

The Gulf Stream which flows between Bermuda and the North American continent keeps the climate temperate. A change of seasons comes during mid-November to mid-December and from late March to April. Either spring or summer weather may occur and visitors should be prepared for both. Showers may be heavy at times but occur mainly at night. Summer temperatures prevail from May to mid-November with the warmest weather in July August and September ranging between 20c and 30c. - this period is occasionally followed by high winds . Winter temperatures range between 15c and 20c.
