More Horrible Weather On The Way

Very high winds and increased precipitation are in the cards for Iceland over the next couple of days.

Vísir reports that winds reaching between 20 to 28m/s can be expected, starting tomorrow afternoon, across southern and western Iceland. These wind speeds should reach the north and east by the following night.

There will also be a great deal of precipitation, especially in the south and the east. Whether that precipitation will take the form of rain, snow, or some combination of these two still remains to be seen.

However, it is expected that temperatures will be considerably colder – from 0°C to 8°C – across the east, while being slightly warmer in the south. This will almost definitely mean snow for the east, while those of us living in the southwest may receive a mixture of snow, sleet and rain.

Please keep these conditions in mind if you are planning on traveling over the next two or three days.
