Summer 2019 -Wintery weather can be experienced in the summer too! The notorious climate catches fishermen and farmers off guard so a constant watch on weather forecasts is a necessity here on the islands. Dramatic clouds and storm clouds form out to sea and it is often possible to judge the direction of travel of the storms, sometimes they just miss the islands and continue on North to Iceland, other times you estimate the ammount of time you have before you have to drop tools and run for shelter! The ground quickly becomes sodden, waterfalls form instantly then are gone, rainbows appear and disappear a typical summer storm passing through. Fortunately there are plenty of dry, sunny days too as the summer storms never last too long.
