Record Snow in Reykjavík

Posted by on Tuesday, February 28, 2017


Residents of Reykjavík in Iceland woke up to a snow day on Sunday.

This is the most snow to cover the capital since 1937.

51 cm of snow fell. Although the old record from January 18, 1937, is 55 cm. It was however, the largest snow accumulation on record for February in the capital area.

Church ministers in many churches in Reykjavík had to cancel mass, because no one would have been able to attend.
There was no bus service until late in the afternoon.

Some roads out of the capital area had to be closed.

Conditions were much improved on Monday Night.
