Another sunny day in Reykjavik.



Just look at those intermittent breaks in the cloud, better get the factor 50 out.

That would be an average winter day. Summer would be sunny on average.

Nope, given the fact that he has his shirt off and is exposing his sculpted physique to the elements, it's safe to assume that it's most likely warmer than the frigid 14C you'd see during a typical Reykjavik summer day.

The cloud isn't unusual, since Reykjavik is predominantly cloudy at all times of year.

Fridgid! That's ridiculous, frigid is lower than -10°C. This is an unusual summer day, being both warmer and cloudier than average. The cloud is unusual in summer.

Perhaps my language was strong, but I rarely see people lounging around shirtless in those temperatures unless they've escaped from the local asylum.

God spare us from having to expose our skin to the relentless sun of Reykjiavik's summer.

What's this? Direct source? In the whole day there was a single temperature reading? Why did you kind of repeat my post? I had already posted the data based on the SYNOP (google what it is), which is much more complete and reliable.

Kid, don't teach anyone, try to learn instead. It's not embarrassing trying to learn from others. I do it all the time. You just know nothing on the topic, which is normal, but you have a lot of free time! If you like climatology, seize the opportunity, boy! You have plenty of people here you can ask stuff!!

Anyway, more summers (July)

Jul 2016: https://www.ogimet.com/cgi-bin/gsynr...min=0&ndays=31

Jul 2015: https://www.ogimet.com/cgi-bin/gsynr...min=0&ndays=31

And yes, Reykjavik is not sunny in the summer.
Sorry.

Sorry.
A few cloudy summers do not constitute a cloudy summer. For that you need 1981-2010 averages and this clearly shows Reykjavik has sunny summers.
