Iceland enduring the worst summer for 100 years

Iceland’s greyest, wettest summer since 1914 can be blamed on the UK heat wave, says Icelandic meteorologist Trausti Jonsson.

“The people of Reykjavík are paying for the sunshine in England and southern Scandinavia,” said Jonsson, thanks to high pressure over western Europe changing the jet stream and pushing clouds over the north of the continent.

“Haven’t been rain here for almost three months on the west coast of Sweden,” says Viking. “Most of the grass is yellow. really odd weather.”

“This weather is scaring me and all people around me is screaming about global warming and buying a/c for the coming climate change (warmer) and I’m just shaking my head.”
