ARC Europe Weather Bermuda-Azores 28 May 2018



Weather: Bermuda to Azores
Prepared: May 28 05:49UTC


Synopsis: A cold front extends SSW to 30N/55W in association with a storm near 53N/39W. This front will weaken as it moves E across Azores thru the 29th, as the storm weakens into a gale offshore of SE Greenland.

Moderate ridging extends E to near 10W, with broader ridging continuing E to Gibraltar from High centered near the Azores. High will drift S to 30N thru the 29th, then expected to drift slowly W to 34W by the 02nd as the ridge axis broadens as it shifts S across the Canaries.

By noon of 30th, a second cold front will extend SE to 40N/40W, then SW to 33N/65W in association with a large gale centered near 46N/47W. Gale is expected to drift S and stall near 40N by the 01st, while changing little in intensity as the cold front extends from 43N/43W SSW to 25N/55W.

Moderate ridging extends E to 45W in association with a second High S of Newfoundland. This high will broaden slightly as it tracks ENE to 45N/35W by the 29th.

Conclusion: A cold front will passes thru a majority of the grids over the next couple of days. The strongest SW winds will be seen across Grids LL, NN and PP, with moderate to freshening winds expected. As the cold front passes over the next couple days, expect winds to gust mainly into the middle to upper 20s across Grids LL, NN and PP, though winds will gust into the middle 30s across Grid LL later on the 30th as the second cold front approaches from the west. The wind gusts into the middle 20s will be brief across Grid PP, as the cold front is expected to weaken considerably by the time it reaches the Azores late 29th. Across the S'rn Grids MM and OO, winds will be more gentle to moderate with occasional gusts into the lower 20s as these two grids will see less of a SW enhancement from the cold front. The largest swell will be found across the N'rn Grids, LL, NN and PP, with swell mainly up to 8ft at times throughout the forecast period, with a few 9-11ft swell sets expected to build on the 30th, though swell will trend towards the higher ends of ranges across Grid LL. Some of these higher swell will work its way SE into Grid KK as well. Lighter swell will prevail across Grids MM and OO, with swell mainly at or below 7ft over the course of the forecast period.
