Icelanders bundle up as temperatures plunge down to minus 18
Temperatures went down to -18 C in central Iceland last night and the temperatures will continue to go down. In Reykjavik the temperature was -10 degrees C this morning.
The Iceland Met Office says that it's not unlikely that the temperature will beat the record for this time of year. The record was set in Möðrudalur in the North central highlands in 1978 at -24.2 C.
The cold will however be chased away by warmer weather by the middle of the week when some rain is expected.
There are icy patches on roads in many parts of the country and drivers are urged to drive carefully on properly equipped vehicles.
