Stormy Weather On Its Way

A storm warning is in effect for tomorrow in southeast Iceland and the Westfjörds.

The Icelandic Met Office reports that a warm front is expected to hit a cold front just south of Iceland today, and with it, stormy weather will be the result.

Specifically, this means winds traveling between 15m/s and 23m/s, and rain turning into either sleet or snow, in the southeast portion of the country and in the Westfjörds.

Those of us living in the capital region will be spared the worst of it, but we can still expect very low temperatures, hovering around the freezing point.

If you are currently staying in, or planning to travel to, either the southeast or the Westfjörds, please exercise caution if you absolutely must travel. If not, wait the storm out – Icelandic weather is notorious for changing up fairly quickly.
