The Iceland Monitor reports Iceland has suffered an unusually cold July. The title of the article, “Hardly a warm day in July,” says it all.

“‘The average temperature was 1.0 degrees below average (1991-2020),’ writes the meteorologist Einar Sveinbjörnsson on the Facebook page Blika weather,” according to the Iceland Monitor.

Sveinbjörnssoin also said it was notable that in Reykjavík in July the highest temperature was only 15.9 grades Celsius (60.62 Fahrenheit). According to Sveinbjörnssoin, one would have to go back to 1989 to find a lower high temperature recorded in July.

“Nationwide, there were hardly a few days that the warmth in July … July the coldest one ever.”

Iceland’s chilly July follows the country’s coldest June in 30 years, as well.
