Driving conditions could be better on Holtavörðuheiði mountain pass, the main connection between South and North Iceland, with a prediction of strong wind, drifting snow and poor visibility, reports.

Tonight, the wind is expected to calm, making traveling easier.

In East Iceland, the mountain passes across Öxi and Breiðdalsheiði are closed.

The road conditions in South Iceland are good all the way to Djúpivogur in the southern East Fjords.
