HAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC): Sub-tropical Bermuda has recorded its coldest March 5 since records began more than 50 years ago, the Bermuda Weather Service (BWS) said on Tuesday.

BWS said Sunday’s bone-chilling temperature fell to 47.7 Fahrenheit (8.7 Celsius) at 9.30 p.m., a record low for the date.

The previous low for March 5 was 52F recorded in 1978, the BWS’s deputy director James Dodgson said.

The last time the island recorded a low similar to Sunday’s was on February 27, 2006, when it dropped to 47.1F.

The island’s lowest recorded temperature was 43.3F on February 26, 1993.

Dodgson said cold north-to-northwesterly outbreaks were often accompanied by blustery showers, some of which can produce small hail, as was the case on Sunday.

The island began to warm-up again with a high of 63F forecast for Tuesday, climbing to 65F on Wednesday.
