The autumnal equinox may have already come and gone, but apparently no one told Iceland. According to the latest forecast for the rest of the week and the weekend, the western portion of Iceland could see temperatures as high as 18° today.

Most of the country should be relatively dry today, with the exception of South Iceland, which may see some modest showers. Friday also promises to be warm, with mostly to partially sunny skies, while the northeast will get their turn for rainfall. Friday evening may bring strong winds to the capital area, possibly reaching anywhere from 10 to 15 metres per second.

Saturday will bring grey skies for most of the country, with the exception of the sunny skies predicted for the Westfjords, while Sunday is expected to truly live up to its name—there will be very little cloud cover on this day, but temperatures are expected to descend into the upper single digits.

As always before traveling into the Icelandic countryside, be sure to check both weather and road conditions—both can change quickly, and an ounce of prevention is worth more than a call to the rescue squad.
