Iceland Unseasonably Warm and Wet Last Year

According the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the weather in Iceland in 2007 was both unseasonably warm and wet. In Reykjavík, precipitation records were broken both in December alone and in the year as a whole.

It has not rained more in Reykjavík since 1921, reports.

Last year was also unseasonably warm, the 10th warmest year in south and west Iceland since temperatures were first registered, and the 14th or 15th warmest in northeast Iceland.

In the southwestern corner of the country, the summer was unusually dry, while the autumn was unseasonably rainy. Since August, there have been very few rainless days in south and west Iceland.
