Another midwinter storm is due to touch down at around 20:00 tonight, a new weather alert from the Icelandic Met Office announces. This storm pertains to roughly the entire western half of the country.
From Vík in the south to Siglufjörður in the north, wind speeds of 15 to 23 metres per second can be expected. It is very likely this will be accompanied by hail, and poor visibility for driving.
The situation is slightly worse around Breiðafjörður and the Westfjords, as winds will range from 18 to 25 metres per second.
Bear in mind that wind speeds can be even stronger near mountains, as sudden powerful gusts can come rushing down mountainsides. These conditions are expected to persist from tonight until around noon on Thursday.
The weather in Iceland is notoriously fast-changing. As always, consult SafeTravel.is before you get behind the wheel and drive anywhere in the countryside.
