Sun shines on Iceland this weekend

After below-average temperatures in May and a windy and rainy early June, the weather in Iceland is improving. Temperatures are expected to rise up to 20°C in all parts of the country.

According to Morgunbladid, the best weather will be in Akureyri, northeast Iceland, and in Egilsstadir, east Iceland, on Saturday and Sunday, but on Monday the sun in the capital region will shine the brightest.

Icelandic strawberries have made it to stores despite a cold spring. They are grown in greenhouses, but without electrical lighting. The main harvest period began one week ago and fresh Icelandic strawberries will be available until the end of June.

According to Eiríkur Ágústsson, strawberry grower and owner of the company Silfurberid (“Silver Berry”), natural lighting this spring proved optimal for strawberry growing.
