During this month two major patterns occur: fair and cold weather under the influence of a strong Greenland high pressure cell or stormy with temperatures near freezing under the influence of a deep low pressure center moving over Iceland from the southwest. The average temperature falls to near freezing, 32.7°F (0.4C); a drop of 3.4*F from November. The coldest temperature recorded during the month occurred in 1973 when the tem- perature dropped to 7°F (-13.9C). The warmest temperature for the month occurred in 1976 and also in earlier years when the tempera- ture reached 49°F (9.4'C). Prevailing winds predominate from the northeast quadrant 34.671 of the time, and the southeast quad- rant 30.2% of the time with a mean wind speed of 14 knots. A peak wind gust of 73 knots was recorded in 1972. Chill Index II becomes the predominate condition with frequent occurrences of Chill Index III and the slight possibility of Chill Index IV. The mean equivalent air temperature therefore is only 11 degrees Fahrenheit. Overall the precipitation amounts for December make it the second wet- test month, however, more than one third of this total falls as snow. Rain or drizzle can be expected on nearly 17 days of the month vhile measurable amounts of snow may be expected on over 11 days of the month. Snowfall reaches its annual maximum mean of 19.1 inches and blowing snow becomes very common. The winter solstice occurs on December 21 with only four hours and 12 minutes between sunrise and sunset. After this date the hours of daylight gradually increase to a maximum in late June. coo ^Sjkj'' THE WHITE FALCON The White Falcon Is published weekly by the Iceland Defense Force Public Affaire Office for military and U.
