The climate of Vestmannaeyjar (Iceland)
Vestmannaeyjar is an archipelago off the south coast of Iceland and is also known as the Westman Islands. The archipelago consists of 11 large islands, 4 smaller islands and several rocks. Of all these islands only the island Heimaey is inhabited. This island has a square surface area of 13.5 kilometers and is the largest of the Westman Islands. A large volcanic eruption destroyed more than 400 houses on the island in the 1970s. The Westman Islands have a cool maritime climate with cool summers and cold winters. An ever blowing sea wind causes temperatures to be much milder than you would expect in an area so close to the North Pole. During the coldest months of winter average temperatures only just drop below zero. Because of its situation towards the mainland the influence of depressions is stronger here which causes precipitation figures to be higher. The average annual temperature is 4.8 degrees Celsius. The Westman Islands get 1,588 millimeters of annual precipitation on average.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
