According to meteorologist Elín Björg Jónasdóttir, temperatures around the country were generally measured at around 8-13 C° last Friday. In the East Fjords, the warm, dry wind from the mountains helps to raise the temperature even further. Elín says that even though no temperature records were broken, this is considered very warm for this time of year. The record for the warmest weather in March was measured at 18.3 C° on March 27 in year 1948 in Sandur, Aðaldal, a valley near Húsavík. Elín adds however that such warm weather also comes with strong wind and precipitation.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />
