Climate and average weather in Faroe Islands
Not many people seem to make it to all the way to the Faroe islands. Floating in the Atlantic Ocean, only a few hundred miles southeast of Iceland, this ruggedly-handsome archipelago serves up spectacular scenery but without the crowds.
There is a maritime climate on the Faroe Islands and the weather is very unpredictable. You could have a radiant sun with a large fog bank in the background along a mountain, on the other side of that same mountain it can pour rain at the same time. During summer the islands are often surrounded by a mysterious fog.
The average winter temperatures are very moderate, given the fairly high latitude. If there is snowfall, it will only be short-lived. The average temperature in the Faroe Islands fluctuates around 3 degrees Celsius (37.5 degrees Fahrenheit) in winter and can reach on average 11 ° C (52 ° F) in summer. The best time of the year to visit the islands is between the beginning of July and the end of August.
