Hamilton Bermuda Weather

 
 
Hamilton City is located centrally in Bermuda in Pembroke Parish and its weather is considered to represent the overall weather conditions of Bermuda, because the entire island is only 21 square miles in size. The summer season (and also the high tourist season) starts from May when the average air temperature rises to the mid-70s (F). May 24 is known as Bermuda Day which signifies the official start of summer when many islanders are seen to take a dip into the sea for the first time in the year. 
 
 
 
The air temperature climbs to its highest in August when it reaches the 80s. The summer season continues until October-end after which the tourist season gradually ends. May to October is the beach time when the popular beaches get crowded and water based activities take place in full steam. However, during summers, the average humidity can rise to uncomfortable levels (80% or above) and therefore taking long walks on a sunny day can be very uncomfortable. 
 
From November the air temperature starts to descend and drops to high 60s by December. The average air temperature remains in 60s till March. November to February is the winter season. Humidity remains low during winter (around 73%), so this is an ideal time for outdoor activities like golfing, hiking, cycling etc. The month of March and April are considered spring time. In April the temperature rises to high 60s to low 70s. 
 
There is no rainy day as such in Hamilton or for that matter in the whole of Bermuda, it can rain any day but usually in short spurts. The number of rainy days is highest in winter (it rains for about 15 to 17 days in a month).

HAMILTON BERMUDA WEATER FORECAST 
LOADING WEATHER...  
 
Hi Raj, How is the weather in Hamilton? We are planning a trip in June and like to spend a lot of time in Hamilton City. Like to go around shopping, try out some of the harbor-front restaurants, walk around to see the city etc etc. Just wanted to check if weather could become the spoilsport here. 
 
Does it rain then? How is the temperature and what kind of clothes do you recommend we carry with us. Appreciate your time and response.

Shane, Hamilton city is a great place to spend your vacation time. Most of the activities of the island are centered around this place. Average weather in Hamilton Bermuda is no different from rest of the island as Bermuda is really tiny (about 21 square mile in size) and the general weather conditions remain same throughout the island. However I know of several occasions where it had been raining heavily at the east end in St. George's while it remained completely dry at Hamilton City. 
 
Now coming to your question, June falls in the summer month and is part of the peak tourist season. It's considered to be in high season mainly because weather is at its best around this time and remains so through October. The temperature in June usually varies between 73F to 81F. The average water temperature is around 77F, so it's a great time for swimming and snorkeling as well. 
 
You can bring light comfortable cotton wears during this time and enjoy the sun. However the high humidity (over 80%) can make it quite uncomfortable at times. If you plan to dine in some of the more formal restaurants, get a light jacket and shoes as well. 
 
Some of the restaurants in Bermuda follow Dress Code and expect men to wear jackets in the evening although many are relaxing such requirements these days. 
 
There is no rainy season or monsoon time in Bermuda. It can rain any time but usually in short spurts. In June, on an average it rains on 8 days a month. 
 
I suggest that you check out Bermuda Weather. It has links giving detailed weather conditions for any month along with typical day time pictures. 
 
Another thing for you to remember is that June is the start of the official hurricane season in Bermuda. But don't be scared. Bermuda has always been very well prepared to handle hurricane. In most cases the storms or the hurricanes get diverted away and do not strike the island. Even if they do, the severe ones are only seldom seen. Suggest you check out Bermuda Hurricane to get complete idea and information about hurricanes in Bermuda. 
 
Hope this helps!!
