This week the heat will reach 20°C (69°F) in northeast Iceland. In the west however, temperatures will barely reach 10°C (50°F).

RÚV reports this change in the weather started yesterday, with the east of the country bringing in warm and moist air over the days ahead.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be the high-point for temperatures, which could reach as high as 20°C in the northeast. After that, temperatures will begin to drop again.

Even though the weather will be pleasant in the coming days, the Icelandic Meteorological Office (Veðurstofan) reminds people that the wind might be brisk. If you are thinking about taking a trip, check the weather forecast before leaving – there may be advisories warning against driving if the winds get especially strong.
