People urged to follow weather forecast closely due to storms
The bad weather is likely to be at its worst in South East and North West Iceland today. The capital area will escape the worst but there will be snowfall and wind in the afternoon. Weather could be very changeable so people should monitor the forecast carefully if travelling.
There is a yellow weather warning for most parts of he country and in South East Iceland there is an orange weather alert as a blinding storm is expected from Vík to Skeiðarársandur.
Tomorrow there will be continuing winds and snowfall, also in the capital area, but subsiding by evening.
The storms are caused by an area of low depression South East of Iceland moving North East and then Nort West. These kinds of lows can cause very changeable weather if they take a slightly different route than the one predicted.
