The average temperature in July is around 54°F I think ..... highs are typically high 50's to mid 60's; lows, 40's - 50's. The highest recorded temperature in Reykjavik is about 72°F ..... might be slightly higher. That record high was in July 2008, can't remember exactly what it was, but it was incredibly warm compared to what we're used to.

I'm so glad you started this Cubit, Rann. I'm looking forward to learning even more about Iceland than I have in the past from your posts on the weather forum, both here on Cubits and on DG.
That's a lovely photo. It reminds me that, after you had posted something in the wee hours of the morning one time, I asked you when did you sleep (during those many hours of sunlight in the summer) and you answered: "I sleep in December."
Yeah it's hard to sleep in summer, you don't want to miss a moment of those precious days. And being out in the garden at night is just wonderful Actually for most of December I'm too busy to make preparations for Christmas to sleep, but for the rest of December and then January ...... zzzzzzzzzz It's really hard to get going in the morning when sunrise is after 11 am ........
This is the magical sunrise I stayed up for that night in question. It was at 3:40 am. It was completely calm and completely quiet apart from the birds singing .....
A cubit about the challenges of gardening and living in Iceland. The climate, the plants that can be grown here, beautiful gardens, beautiful scenery, a bit of culture and history and daily life before and after the economic collapse.
