In a unsurprising turn of events, the weather will be getting much colder in Iceland in the coming days.

RÚV reports that dropping temperatures are expected to cause icy road conditions and black ice. The Icelandic Met Office has stipulated that this is mostly applicable to the West and Southwestern parts of Iceland and mountain roads in the North and Northeast.

Icy road conditions have been reported in Hellisheiði, Sandskeiði, at Mosfellsheiði and Lyngdalsheiði, so if you are traveling through those areas, stay vigilant.

Up north icy road conditions and hail showers are expected at Holtavörðuheiði, Hrútafjörður, Bröttubrekka and Svínadalur.

For those who are traveling through Iceland by car it’s good to check out Safe Travel and the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration for information on road safety and to stay up to date on any road closures or notices.

Note: an earlier version of this article accidentally spelled the word “surprises” as “suprises”. In the headline, of all places. This has been amended. But, you know, we’re not even sorry. It’s not like everything you do is perfect all the time.
