What's the weather like in the Faroe Islands in September?
The average maximum day time temperature in Faroe Islands in September is a cool 11°C (52°F). The average night-time temperature is usually a cold 7°C (45°F). Sunrise is at 06:34 and sunset is at 20:17. The islands are generally windy, cloudy and cool throughout the year. Variations in altitude,ocean currents, topography and wind mean the climate differs greatly, even though distances between locations is small. This makes for unpredictable and highly changeable weather. You can literally experience all four seasons in one day! The climate, classed as Maritime Subarctic according to the Köppen climate classification, is influenced by the strong warming influence of the Atlantic Ocean, which produces the North Atlantic Current.
