ARC Europe Weather Bermuda-Azores 22 May 2018



Weather Bermuda to Azores
Prepared: May 22 07:42UTC

Synopsis: A broad High centered over Azores extends ridging NE to N Ireland, stronger ridging SE to the Canaries, and stronger ridging SW to Bahamas. Will tend to change little thru 28th.

Gale near 57N/40W extends cold front SW to Bermuda/US coast. The front will tend to weaken E of 25W while extending over Azores thru 24th, while the associated gale lifts NE to near 57N/20W and weakens.

Another Low will be centered over 42N/57W by 23rd, while extending a cold front SW to the Outer Banks of N Carolina. Will strengthen into a gale as it quickly lifts NE to near 58N/36W thru 25th. The cold front will then extend SW to near 30N/65W and will weaken thru 26th.

A Low centered near 37N/15W will drift thru 24th before weakening into a thermal trough over the Iberian Peninsula. The trough will change little in both strength and location thru 26th before broadening over Iberia, E to the Balearics thru 27th.

Conclusions:
Zones EE and GG expect light to moderate SW to NW breezes, with peak NW swell sets of 5-8 feet across Zones EE/GG, and 4-7 feet across II. Across these 3 zones expect isolated squalls.

Zones FF, HH, and JJ, approaching cold front will give showers and squalls, in addition to locally adverse wind chop. Across Zone FF, expect SW gusts up to 40 knots ate on the 24th into morning of the 25th. Also expected are peak SW moderate period swell sets up to 11-14 feet.

Similar conditions, with SW gusts of to 35 knots and peak SW moderate period swell sets up to 11-14 feet, can be expected across Zone HH. SW gusts approaching 30 knots and SW moderate period swell sets of 8-11 feet across Zone JJ also anticipated. This front will be slow to progress E over the next several days, and this is likely to result in continued rough conditions at times thru much of this week into the weekend, particularly across Norther zones.
