Severe Weather Conditions to Be Expected in All Regions

Stormy weather is expected in all regions of the country tomorrow evening. The Icelandic Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings in South Iceland, Faxaflói, Southwest Iceland, Westnorthwest Iceland and the Central highlands.

An unusually deep depression is likely to cross the country tomorrow, resulting in strong winds and heavy precipitation. According to Birta Líf Kristinsdóttir, a meteorologist at the Met Office, all regions be affected by the weather.

“According to the current forecast, the southwestern and western regions will be experiencing the strongest winds tomorrow night while precipitation will be heavy in the southern and southeastern regions,” Kristinsdóttir says.

She says that although warnings have not been issued for the northern parts of the country, bad weather is also expected in the region. “A storm is also forecast in North Iceland tomorrow, although the wind is not expected to be as strong there as in other regions.”

Kristinsdóttir urges people to take precautions before the storm hits. Securing loose objects outdoors, such as trampolines, barbecues and lawn furniture is vital to ensure the safety of people in the area.

The Met Office has said that some transport disturbances are to be expected due to the storm. Travelers should monitor the situation closely and plan accordingly. The storm is expected to die down on Thursday morning.
