The Icelandic Met Office has upgraded its weather warning for North Iceland and the Westfjords tomorrow from yellow to orange. Yellow weather warnings have been issued for the rest of the country as well. A south and southwest gale will begin tomorrow morning and hit hardest in the afternoon. Warnings remain in effect in areas of North Iceland and the Westfjords until early Sunday morning.
The gale will bring south and southwest winds at 20-28 metres per second, with strong gusts expected close to mountains. These conditions are particularly hazardous for vehicles that are sensitive to wind and residents are advised to secure outdoor furniture and belongings. Snow showers and poor visibility are expected throughout the evening across the entire country.
