The relatively warm Irminger Current (part of the Gulf Stream) causes cool summers (July: approx. 8–5 ° C) and mild winters (January: approx. -6 to + 2 ° C). The winter months are the windiest and wettest months. The mean annual precipitation is 800–2,000 mm in the southwest and south, 400–700 mm in the north. North Atlantic lows bring storms and frequent weather changes, intensified by the approach and retreat of the polar drift ice.
Iceland responded to global warming in 2018 with a new climate strategy that aims to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement by 2030 and make the country CO 2 neutral by 2040. Icelandic climatologists expect the glaciers to disappear in 100–200 years. In 2014, the first glacier in Iceland, Okjökull, disappeared.
