  MAP & WEATHER

Weather
ICELAND - AUGUST
July and August are the warmest months and, in general, the chances of fine weather improve as you move north and east. It's sunniest in the central north and warmest around the east, yet neither place seems to be free of an uncomfortably chilly wind. Iceland cannot be considered a warm place by any normal standards, but thanks to the Gulf Stream temperatures are usually moderate all year round. Average temperatures in July are about (54°F 12°C) in Reykjavik; it is usually a bit warmer in the north and east of Iceland. The biggest factor in Icelandic weather is its unpredictability, you never know what is going to happen next. A beautiful day can suddenly turn windy and rainy (and vice versa), and you can expect to see every weather imaginable in a couple of days in Iceland, especially in late autumn and early spring, so be prepared for anything.
