Bad weather throughout the country

Bad weather throughout the country yesterday has compromised road safety and tourists are asked to increase caution while travelling, reports Vísir.

Iceland’s Meteorological Office predicts heavy rainfall and high winds will effect most parts of the country and continue over the coming days. Although this level of rainfall is unusual for the beginning of July and has not been seen in many years, meteorologist Trausti Jóns­son says there may well come “seven crappy summers in a row” in the future, so we might as well get used to it and stop interpreting the bad weather as though it were “some kind of persecution.”

Travellers are asked to remain vigilant of wet roads and to be careful when driving over any flooded areas or shallow rivers while the weather persists. Drivers with trailers hitched to their cars are also asked to consider the possibility of strong side winds and to drive carefully.

If you are looking for good weather in the coming week, North Eastern Iceland is the way to go.
