Bermuda Weather in May

 
May is when the summer starts in Bermuda. This is the month when the temperature rises and generally stays between an average high of 75 degree Fahrenheit to a low of 68 degree. The water temperature also jumps to 74 degree. This is the month when many Bermudians take their first dip into water in the year. However, the humidity also starts rising and can be well over 80% on certain days. So it can be unpleasantly warm at times. 
 
Cruise ships carrying loads of tourists start docking at the Bermuda ports during May. Month of May marks the start of the cruise season and therefore the population in this tiny island also starts to swell. Here is a picture of how a typical day in May looks in Bermuda.
