It was a rainy day in Reykjavik

Many think that Reykjavik is a constantly frozen winter-wonderland. This is a myth. Average mid-winter temperatures are no lower than those in Toronto, Canada or the U.S. East Coast. This is because Iceland's coastal weather is moderated by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The city's coastal location does make it prone to wind. Reykjavik is a very wet city, having an average of 213 rainy days every year.
