What’s the weather like in Reykjavik in October?
Autumn time in Reykjavik is very colourful and romantic. There isn’t much sunshine in October, but you can still have a great time with some sightseeing, shopping, and exploring.
Located in southwest Iceland, the city of Reykjavik is known for its subarctic climate. Temperatures are very low at this time of year, so a warm coat and a pair of gloves are necessary. The city is prone to winds because it’s in the path of cold winds blowing in from the Atlantic, so make sure to hold onto your hat when you’re out exploring the city.
Reykjavik weather in November is very cold with an average temperature of just 4°C. On a good day, this can climb to 6°C but will eventually fall again and plummet to lows of just 2°C. There are two hours of sunshine per day, which isn’t very much due to an increase in cloud coverage throughout autumn and winter. The average rainfall is 30mm that spreads over 21 days of the month. The sea water is too cold for a swim, with an average temperature of just 8°C.
