630 hours is ridiculous. It's not about percent sun, Reykjavik gets more summer sun than Nairobi does in winter (and its on the equator).

No, it's not. Stop talking nonsense all the time.
Reykjavik itself is one of the gloomiest cities/capitals in the world.

I was there in Summer, and I agree - it was mild. I did wear mostly long sleeves but no sweater untill late afternoon. Gloomy too. Had just a couple of sunny days and warm enough for a short sleeve. Probably around 60F.
People living there are so happy to see a sunny, warm day that they often wear light summer clothes even if feels still chilly
BTW: some of their beaches have black sand...
And on warm Summer days you can go to the beach and swim in the geothermal water in Reykjavik.

Yes it is gloomy for the year as a whole and in the winter, but its sunny from April to August as it has more than 5 hours of sun per day then.

Well it's unusual for it to be gloomy in summer. Do you factor in the sunshine in early morning and late evening?

No of course Stockholm isn't sunny in December. About half the world is sunny year round and 80% has at least one sunny month.

I basically got yelled at for suggesting Reykjavik has a cool summer, so I just want to know if I am really wrong.
Average high for each month below 60F? I don't see how that could be considered anything other than a cool summer.
