The Icelandic Met office has issued a stormy forecast over the next few days, and the general public is encouraged to follow the forecasts closely before venturing out.

As can be seen, high winds and heavy rain will dominate the day and continue late into the night tonight.

Today’s storm will bring winds from 15 to 23 m/s and heavy rains, moving from the southwest to the northeast. As the night progresses, there may be significant snowfall in the west and northwest.

Over Wednesday and Thursday, the north and northeast will continue to see high winds and precipitation, with snow expected in the west and the north. Friday, stormy conditions will pick up again in the southwest, bringing with it the possibility of sleet, hail or snow.

The weekend should be windy and rainy, albeit not as windy as it was in the days previous, but temperatures will be slightly warmer.
