Reykjavik experiences four distinct seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn. The winter months, from December to February, are the coldest with temperatures often dropping below freezing, while summers are mild with temperatures ranging from 10 to 15 degrees Celsius.
Reykjavik's unique landscape greatly influences its atmospheric pressure. The city is surrounded by mountains, including the iconic Mount Esja, and is located on a peninsula.

However, weather systems from the North Atlantic can still bring changeable and sometimes stormy conditions to the area.
