If the torrential downpour that has reigned over Iceland for the past few days has gotten you down, take heart: this weekend should be kind to you.

According to the latest forecast, this weekend should be a relatively dry one for most of the country. Clear skies are predicted for much of the capital area, with light showers to be expected in the southeast and the west on Saturday and Sunday.

Wind speeds may break the double-digits today, especially in the capital area and in the northwest, but they will be considerably calmer tomorrow. Wind speeds will remain calm on Sunday, with the possible exception of the southeast, where winds will be particularly stronger just off the coast.

Temperatures could reach as high as 10°C today across most of coastal Iceland. However, these temperatures will gradually fall over the weekend, moving into the lower single digits in the northeast on Sunday, although the capital area should stay in the upper single digits.

As always, the weather in Iceland is subject to unexpected and dramatic changes. Always check the weather forecast before venturing out into the countryside.
