No Travel Weather Today

Orange and yellow weather warnings are in effect across the country today. High winds and rain are in the forecast through to Monday evening in the capital region and much of the North, West and South. A yellow warning will remain in effect in the East until Tuesday morning, according to Vedur.is.

With winds reaching 28 metres per second in some regions and 40 metres per second in the mountains, road conditions are slippery, and many mountain passes are unsafe to traverse or closed entirely.

Elín Björk Jónasdóttir, a meteorologist with the Icelandic Meteorological Office, told RÚV there is increased risk of mudslides in the South and Southeast, where the rain is expected to be heaviest.

The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration reports that many roads outside of the capital area are closed, or the conditions are slippery. Travellers can keep an eye on current road conditions on Road.is.
