Weather details in april

Temperatures continue to climb during the month of April. However the weather is still bad and the north often knows snowfall while in the south, the climatic conditions change as the month goes by. Sometimes the climate throughout April in Iceland is rainy, sometimes it becomes snowy. Be that as it may, with the persistent harshness of winter, the climate in Iceland remains unfavorable.

April in Reykjavik and South-western Iceland

Midday is relatively mild, as it is possible to have temperatures higher than 6° C. It is also noted that the days, with temperatures below zero, are few in number. However, the first days of the month experience an increased alternation of rain and snow. It is therefore necessary to wait until the end of the month to enjoy longer sunshine.

April in Akureyri and Northern Iceland

Unlike Reykjavik which is rainy, Akureyri is drier. The sky is cloudy and ends up favoring snowfall. It is still cold in the north because the temperature is rising rather slowly. Towards the end of the month however, one can expect more beautiful weather, with a climate in Iceland throughout April that is less unfavorable. This month sees in fact, more days with cloud thinnings.
