Iceland begins its week with an orange warning in force in many parts of the country. A strong storm is expected in the western part of the country (Faxaflói, Breiðafjörður, Westfjords, Strandir) and the central highlands. In the capital area, a yellow warning will be in place at least until the afternoon. 

You can now order First Lady of Iceland Eliza Reid’s new book from our store! Of course, you will also get a copy of the latest issue of The Reykjavík Grapevine with it, where you can find the highly interesting interview with the author.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office advises refraining from unnecessary traveling today. The wind gusts can reach up to 40 meters/second in the north. A possibility of floods has also been announced in some areas.

Roads in Bröttabrekka, Kleifarheiði, Hálfdán and Dynjandisheiði as well as a number of mountain roads are now closed. 

We advise you to drive with caution. Follow updates at SafeTravel for the latest on weather and road conditions around the country.
