Historically Cold Summer Confirmed in Recent Report from Met Office

According to a recent report from the Meteorological Office of Iceland, this year’s summer has broken records for low temperatures.

In total, there were 27 days when the temperature exceeded 20°C (68°F) in all of Iceland. Compared to last summer, there were 57 such days of higher temperatures.

The highest recorded temperature this summer was in Mánárbakki in Northeast Iceland, an area that often has sunny and warm weather in the summer.

Reykjavík only managed to register 18°C (64°F) this summer, a 20-year year record that was only lower in 2001.

However, summer is still not entirely over. Relatively calm and warm weather is expected this weekend. Unlikely to break records, it should still be good weather for the final days of hiking, fishing, berry picking, and other outdoor activities this year.
