The weather in Bermuda is subtropical; mild and humid conditions are the norm, with gales and strong winds common in winter. During those winter months (December through March), high temperatures average near 70ºF.
The hottest part of the year is between May and mid-October, when temperatures range from 75ºF to 85ºF. The summer months are somewhat drier, although rainfall is spread fairly evenly throughout the year.
Bermuda is very susceptible to hurricanes because of its position along the powerful Gulf Stream. Though frequently in the path of those powerful storms, they most often seem to weaken as they approach the island.
