The snow that fell in the capital region yesterday has become dirty. Meteorologists find it likely that this is caused by dirt and volcanic ash that was whirled up in the storm at Kirkjubæjarklaustur yesterday and carried with the easterly wind.
After the volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull in spring and summer 2010, ash has often blown in over Reykjavík. However, it has been rather uncommon in the past year, ruv.is reports.
The Met Office predicts that the storm will calm down in the next two days and that the weather will be good on Sunday, wind still and clear widely across the country.
The temperature has increased slightly since yesterday, exceeding point zero in some locations, but according to forecasts, the frost might return on Sunday.
