    Reykjavik weather March

    What’s the weather like in Reykjavik in March?

    Reykjavik weather in March is very similar to previous winter months, but you’ll start to see an increase in sunshine and slightly less rainfall. Of course, it’s still very cold in the city and you should pack plenty of warm clothes for your visit.

    Geographical influences

    Reykjavik is the capital city of Iceland and has a subarctic climate, which means it can get very cold in the winter with temperatures dropping below zero. Strong and cold winds are common at this time of year and blow in from the Atlantic Sea. Regular rain showers are also expected throughout winter, so make sure to pack an umbrella to avoid getting caught out in a surprise downpour.
