Three-Week Heat Wave Concludes in Iceland

The temperature didn’t reach 20°C (68°F) in any part of the country yesterday, thus ending a 23-day series of unusually warm weather. The highest temperature yesterday was 19.9°C at Brúsastaðir, Northwest Iceland.

Dropping temperatures are forecast for the coming days with showers in the south and east, Morgunblaðið reports.

The continuous warmth in combination with alternating rain and shine in many parts of the country has resulted in a good season for mushrooms and wild berries, which are now ripe and juicy.
