Iceland Climate

Due to the northerly location of Iceland climate is milder and especially in winters. climate of iceland is mild and moderate because of the fact that warm currents from Gulf Steam and Gulf of Mexico blow over the land. The iceland weather is on the whole quite changeable and depends mostly on the tracks of the atmospheric depressions crossing the North Atlantic. The passage of a depression some distance south of Iceland causes relatively cold and dry weather, especially in southern districts, while one passing northeastward between Iceland and Greenland brings mild weather, moderately dry in the north for climate iceland.

Iceland climate sees for two to three months in summer continuous daylight in Iceland, and early spring and late autumn enjoy long twilights. climate iceland has really dark period (three to four hours daylight) lasts from about mid-November until the end of January.

For tourists visiting in summers the period between the late May to early September is the best as seen from the weather iceland viewpoint. The winter season is the home of long nights, and severe winter storms. Snow is not as common as the name of the country suggests.
