Weather

What will the weather be  like in Iceland? Changeable, for sure. The climate of Iceland is remarkably moderate. The average daily maximum temperature is 3°C (36 F) in January and 14 °C (58 F) in July. However, as the air is very clean, you will feel  these temperatures much warmer if the sun shines and there is no wind. Some winters there is a lot of snow and sometimes there is almost no snow at all. Rain can happen at almost any time, but this is usually just some sort of light rain that most Icelanders don’t even notice.
