Well, Iceland’s winter weather has thus far been a little bit crazy. In the west, north and east there have been heavy snows and big storms. However, of late, in the south, it has been warm (well, Icelandic warm) and very wet. So much so that Reykjavík experienced its highest ever recorded February temperature, a dizzying 10.2 degrees!

The warmth has increased glacial melting and this, plus the high rainfall, has swollen rivers to very high levels. But this is all set to change in time for the Trefoil Guild Trip to Iceland – next week snow is forecast to return. This is excellent news; if temperatures fall, high pressure builds and if the cold night skies are clear then this could well produce good conditions for viewing the Northern Lights; keep those mittened fingers crossed!
