The first half of this week should bring a welcome reprise of the warm and sunny weather the capital area experienced for much of the summer.

While the past week or so has been decidedly cool and cloudy, the latest weather forecast for the capital area promises good things are afoot. It is highly advisable to take advantage of these conditions while they last.

According to the forecast, Reykjavík will experience mostly to partly sunny skies, Monday through Wednesday evening, with temperatures ranging from 16°C to 20°C – positively molten temperatures by Icelandic standards. Even the characteristic wind will be light for the capital area.

In fact, the situation will be similar for most other parts of the country, with the exceptions of northwest Iceland and the southeast, which will be cloudy with occasional rain showers, and temperatures at around 10°C.

Late August in the capital area is very often the time when the curtain suddenly drops on summer, bringing with it Iceland’s characteristic autumn weather: rain, rain and more rain. Enjoy the sun while you can.
