Snow to Return to Iceland

The temperature may have reached a balmy 12°C (53.6°F) in Reykjavík today but those traveling around the country this week need not unpack their bikinis: sleet and snow are forecast on mountain roads in the north and east of Iceland this evening and tonight. Driving conditions in vehicles without summer tires can be risky, the Icelandic Met Office warns.

Wind of 5 to 13 m/s and sleet is expected in some inland areas on Wednesday with decreasing wind and precipitation in the afternoon.

Rain is forecast for most parts of the country on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and westerly wind and drizzle on the west coast on Sunday with dry and fair weather in the east.
