Winter struck Iceland again with a vengeance last night, as heavy snow hit parts of the north-east.

Police and rescue services were called out several times during the night to assist with vehicles mired in snow on impassable roads. The national ring road was closed near Mývatn.

Temperatures dropped well below freezing in the northern town of Akureyri and conditions this morning there are described as wintry.

You can check out the status of road conditions in real time on the website of the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration here. Iceland Monitor also has a weather forecast section available for readers here.
