The warmest day ever to be registered in Reykjavík was on August 11, 2004, when the temperature climbed to 24.8°C (76.6°F), reports.

Fair weather is forecast throughout this weekend—good news for those running the Reykjavík Marathon and attending Culture Night—although the temperature might drop slightly.

The past few weeks have been very summery in Iceland indeed; day after day the temperature has exceeded 20°C in some parts of the country.
