The weekend forecast is looking good, as far as weather in Iceland is concerned. A temperature of up to 20°C and plenty of sun is forecast in the south of the country. The northern part of the country will, however, see lower temperatures and more clouds and scattered showers. A light breeze can be expected in the west and northwest between 3-8 meters per second, with stronger winds in the east between 8-13 meters per second.

Temperatures will range between 8-15°C throughout most of the country, but will get up to 20°C in southeast Iceland.

On Saturday, winds in the southwest can be expected from 3-8 meters per second. Rain is expected in most parts of the country, with a temperature of 10-18°.

Sunday will see intermittent rain and a slight change in the direction of the wind. The temperature will again range between 10°C and 18°C, with warmer temperatures in the northeast.

This is perfect weather to check out the last days of the Reykjavík Fringe Festival this weekend. Just saying.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
