Weather details in february

Weather conditions in February are as unfavorable as in January. The weather is still frigid and temperatures remain around or below zero. Nevertheless, the precipitation is a slight regression which remains imperceptible. Warm clothes and parkas are essential to feel well during outings, because the climate throughout February in Iceland is dominated by cold and humidity.

January in Reykjavik and South-western Iceland

The climate in the south of the country is still unfavorable. Not only are temperatures still cold but precipitation, despite a discrete decline, dominates the weather in Iceland throughout February. The days are generally cloudy and it is not uncommon to have snowfall - especially towards the middle of the month. Even if the sun returns towards the end of the month, the nights are often rainy. Try to dress accordingly for outings at this time.

January in Akureyri and Northern Iceland

Consider bundling warmly. Climate conditions in the north are rough compared to those observed in Reykjavik. Not only are temperatures still very low but the snowfall also contributes to the bad weather conditions. The chances of having a sunny weather are indeed, very low.
