downdeepinside-deactivated20120 asked: Hey there! I'm going on a school trip to Iceland early next April and was just wondering if you knew the average temperature around that time? I can't decide whether I need to buy lots of warm clothing or not!
As an indicator of how to dress, the average temperature in Iceland is about as useful as the average number of books published. The thing is, Iceland is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you’re gonna get.
The average temperature in April is 2,9°C (35.6°F). However, Iceland is a wild card and it may get as warm as 15°C or drop down to -20°C. Wind, rain and snow are much more influential on how you should dress and you can get all in one day. So bring something waterproof (pants and a jacket), use layers, wear good shoes and don’t forget your hat and gloves.
Just to clarify one thing. There’s no such thing as bad weather in Iceland, just wrong clothing. This video might be from April.
Anonymous asked: what is the weather in iceland like during the summer? also what are the months where it stays light out all day? thanks :)
The weather in Iceland is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get.
The average temperature in Reykjavík is roughly between 0-10°C. During the coldest months, December and January, the average is just below freezing, while the warmest months, July and August average just over 10°C. The hottest summer days we get are somewhere between 20-25°C. Today is an excellent summer day with 17°C, minimal wind and lots of sunshine. That said anything can happen. This year it snowed in both May and June in Reykjavík. It gets very windy and you can expect plenty of wind driven rain. If you plan to do some proper outdoor stuff (what Iceland is all about), then be prepared for everything.
It is more or less light outside all night all summer. The 21. of June is the longest day of the year and then you’ll see no difference between day and night. About a month before and a month after you’ll experience short periods of half dark which increases as you move further away from the 21. of June. The opposite occurs on the 21. of December with 24 hours of darkness.
Since the weather today is so great, I’m out of here and going skydiving.
