Storm and sleet today
The forecast for today is rather bad, 15-23 m/s wind and sleet or snow. Temperatures are expected to be from 0-6 °C (32°F-43°F) tonight. The weather tomorrow and this weekend should be a bit better though. Road conditions are wintery all over Iceland and summer wheels are not going to get you far. Most Icelanders are now using winter or studded tyres.
