Christmas weather during the last 60 years


What was the weather like in Iceland at Christmas, many years ago?

Simple maps are provided, which show the main features of the weather at noon on Christmas Day from 1949 onwards. Each screen has ten maps (ten years) and for easy navigation the buttons + 10 and - 10 (top left) take you a decade back or forth.

The weather at six o'clock on Christmas Eve is also available.

Additionally, snow cover and snow depth at Christmas morning are listed for 1921 - 2006. A table shows snow cover in quarters where 0 means no snow and 4 means complete cover. When that criteria is met, snow depth is given in centimeters.
