A Rainy Easter in the Forecast
The forecast for this Easter weekend in Iceland looks to be a wet one, particularly in South and West Iceland. Nevertheless, while the slopes around the capital area have already closed for the year, the outlook for Iceland’s biggest ski weekend looks much better up north, where RÚV reports that temperatures may reach a balmy 15°C [59°F] on Friday.
Mbl.is has collected the opening hours of ski slopes all over Iceland this holiday weekend. The ski areas in Akureyri, Ísafjörður, Siglufjörður, Dalvík, Seyðistfjörður, and Fjarðabyggð will all be open, generally from 10 am – 4 pm (confirm opening hours via the link above).
There’s not expected to be a respite to the rain down south on Easter Sunday, when the weather is expected to become more overcast up north as well. Meteorologist Sigurður Jónsson noted that there may even be light snow fall here and there over the weekend, although no lasting cold spell is anticipated.
