If you were just getting used to the splendor of autumn, bad news: winter decided to make an early appearance.

If you woke up in Reykjavík this morning, you probably noticed that the high winds had brought with it snowfall. RÚV reports that this was no freak accident: decidedly wintery weather will be sweeping over the country over the next few days.

High winds and snowfall are expected to come in from the southwest, having its greatest impact on the capital area. At the same time, northerly winds will be bringing sleet and snow to north Iceland.

While the capital area may receive some respite later today or tomorrow, the winter conditions in north Iceland are expected to continue until at least Thursday.

If you are traveling to north Iceland during this time, check the Icelandic Met Office for any advisories about road conditions first.
