This summer in Iceland will be colder than average with a 30-percent chance of a wetter than usual summer, according to meteorologist at the Icelandic Met Office Trausti Jónsson.

Trausti came to the conclusion after looking at forecasts from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), an independent intergovernmental organization, mbl.is reports.

The U.S. Met Office has also published a forecast for the coming summer, which is even more negative than that from ECMWF.

The First Day of Summer, an official holiday in Iceland, is on April 23.
