The climate in Iceland
Most people in Iceland live on the coast where there is a coastal plane. The rest of Iceland consists of a mountain plateau of 400 to 800 metres high. Winters are fairly mild on the coast and the summers are cool. In Reykjavik it has never been warmer than 25 °C. Summers the average temperature is around 15 °C. In the winter it just manages to stay above freezing during the day. Due to its elevation, it is substantially colder inland, with even large glaciers. Iceland is wet. It rains two out of every three days. The east side, hidden behind the mountains, gets the least precipitation.
