June is around the corner, and we thought summer was here, but winter is reluctant to leave. Today, snow showers are expected in elevated areas in Northeast Iceland today. The Icelandic Met Office warns that driving conditions for ill equipped vehicles could be treacherous, for example in Fjarðarheiði mountain pass, which connects Egilsstaðir and Seyðisfjörður in East Iceland.
