The fewest sunshine hours were observed in Reykjavík in September since 1943. They were counted to be 52.7 which is 65.5 hours below the average calculated for the years between 1991 and 2020. This was presented by the Icelandic Meteorological Office in its September weather overview.

The month of September was rather on the stormy side, though warm in the beginning, turned cold the last ten days. The precipitation was high above the average in the whole country, with unusually much rain in the south-west part of the island. The winds blew 0.4 m/s over the average. Also, rather unusual gale went over the country blowing from the north-west.

“By the end of the month it also snowed in many of the inhabited regions, and the land turned white in the large parts of the Westfjords and the North Iceland. We could observe snow for two days in Akureyri but the ground was clear for the remaining days. Reykjavik has not experienced snowfall for the whole month” reads the summary.
