After experiencing near-daily rain all summer, residents in South and West Iceland are finally enjoying some sun, RÚV reports. Temperatures are expected to reach 18°C (64°F) in some parts of the region.
The good weather will be fairly short-lived, as rain is in the forecast for both South and West Iceland as early as Wednesday. “For two days we’ll get a small trace of sun and summer,” stated Meteorologist Hrafn Guðmundsson on RÚV morning radio today. “It won’t last long, it’s a little high-pressure ridge which we get to enjoy now. Then right away on Wednesday comes another low-pressure system which, as so often before, is forming in the Greenland Sea with some rain and then after that there will likely not be much sun this week.”
Hrafn encourages locals in the south and west of the country to look on the bright side and enjoy the days of sunshine which appear between the rain.
