The Icelandic Met Office has issued a strong gale warning for the northwestern part of the country tonight and through noon tomorrow. Southwesterly winds are expected to pick up tonight and reach 18-23 meters per second in the northwest, or all the way from Snæfellsnes peninsula to Eyjafjörður.

The Icelandic Met Office points out the possibility of trampolines becoming airborne in those areas.

There are warm days ahead (hot, by Icelandic standards) with rain in the south and west, but temperatures in parts of the north and east could reach 20° Celsius (68° F) tomorrow. On Saturday, conditions will be dry, and the north will see the thermometer shooting up to 20° again. Thus, looking at the map above, you have no reason to see red, for the red indicates 18-20° C (64-68° F).

It’s time to take out your short-sleeved shirt and sunglasses and pretend you’re vacationing in a sunny country in the south.
