Bermuda High A semi-permanent, subtropical area of high pressure in the North Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast of North America that migrates east and west with varying central pressure. Depending on the season, it has different names.
The Bermuda high, area of high pressure located over the western North Atlantic Ocean and can also be taken as a westward extension of the Azores high.
The Islandic low (Iceland low), low-pressure located over the Denmark Strait between Iceland and Greenland.
Bermuda High - It's a weather system that often dominates the eastern United States during the summer. A semi-permanent subtropical high-pressure system over the North Atlantic Ocean brings in warm and humid air for many days or weeks at a time.
Azores HighAlternate term for Bermuda High - a semi-permanent, subtropical area of high pressure in the North Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast of North America that migrates east and west with varying central pressure. Depending on the season, it has different names.
Examples include the Icelandic Low and the Bermuda High in the North Atlantic. SEVERE WEATHER Generally, any destructive weather event, but usually applies to localized storms, such as blizzards, intense thunderstorms, or tornadoes.
An analysis of atmospheric conditions for the summer of 1993 showed a stationary high pressure system, also known as the Bermuda High, centered much closer to the United States than normally observed for that time of year.
In the summer, permanent highs form in the North Atlantic (the Azores-Bermuda high) and the North Pacific (the Hawaiian high) with pressures around 1025 mb. The clockwise geostrophic winds drive a parade of lows onto northern lands, and easterly trade winds in the tropics.
Then the Azores or Bermuda High becomes the dominate weather feature in the North Atlantic.

Subtropical high A semipermanent high in the subtropical high-pressure belt centered near 30° latitude. The Bermuda high is located over the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of North America. The Pacific high is located off the west coast of North America.
A semi-permanent, subtropical area of high pressure in the North Pacific Ocean. It is strongest in the Northern Hemispheric summer and is displaced towards the equator during the winter when the Aleutian Low becomes more dominate. Comparable systems are the Azores High and the Bermuda High.
Hemispheric winter and early spring, when the Icelandic Low dominates the North Atlantic, it is primarily centered near the Azores Islands. When it is displaced westward, during the summer and fall, the center is located in the western North Atlantic, near Bermuda, and is known as the Bermuda High.
Comparable systems are the Azores High and the Bermuda High.North WallThe north side boundary of the Gulf Stream generally extending northeast from Cape Hatteras where the Gulf Stream turns northeast.
