Velvet Lady in the sunshine in Iceland
It is now 2 weeks since we arrived in Iceland and in that time it has rained for 1 day and been cloudy on a second. The rest of the time it has been bright and sunny, with blue skies and crisp dry mountain air, wonderful. We are having to remember to slap on the sunscreen and sunglasses.
Last year the weather was better than we could have imagined and the Icelanders said that they had had their best summer for years, this was due to large areas of high pressure over the island, forcing the depressions south over UK
Long range forecasters here in Iceland, and the locals themselves are expecting much the same kind of weather this year. I was speaking this morning to Siggy, the skipper of the Icelandic sailing boat Aurora, who said, this summer is going to be great again, we are going to have bright sunshine and UK is going to have horrid weather just like last year! For those of us sailing in Iceland lets hope he is right. He certainly is for the next week as the barometer remains high.
Interested in following the forecast – there is a great website that I use at the Icelandic Met Office which gives a forecast for the next 5 days
Still spaces available to join us in the sunshine in Iceland this summer
