There will be a southerly wind everywhere on the northern edge of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and the mountain roads of the Westfjords until noon, Morgunblaðið reports. Wind speeds of 25 meters per second in these areas, making driving conditions could be dangerous for semi-trailers, as reported by the Icelandic Meteorological Office.

“[There should be]…a strong wind in a southerly direction stretching westwards until noon, and then it should slow down. It will be partly cloudy in the eastern and northeastern regions, where the temperature is expected to be at or above 20 degrees Celsius, while it will be slightly overcast in the west of the country with a temperature of about 10 degrees Celsius,” according to the forecast.

There will be a fresh breeze (wind force 5) tomorrow, partly sunny, and still warm around the northeast, but rain for a while in the western half of the country. On Saturday there will be a light southwesterly wind, with mild, cloudy weather, says the Meteorological Office.
