Fine weather forecast for the celebration
Fine weather is forecast on New Year's Eve and New Year‘s Day in all of Iceland. Bonfires will burn cheerfully and fireworks will illuminate the sky, as tradition has it.
Tomorrow morning, winds will be southerly in most of the country, 8-13 m/s with sleet or intermittent rain, but in the afternoon lighter winds are forecast in northern and eastern Iceland with brighter skies.
At midnight winds will be calm everywhere, although light snow showers are expected in the south and the west. Temperatures will be close to zero.
New Year‘s Day has also a fine weather forecast, given the season; slow wind, scattered hail and 0°C. Some snow is, however, expected at the northern coast part of the day.
The forecasters wish everyone a happy new year.
