The Iceland Met Office has issued a warning that mudflows may occur across roads in mountainous regions in Northwest and North Iceland in the coming days. There is also a risk of landslides in the West Fjords and on Tröllaskagi in the north due to heavy rainfall. Several mudslides fell between Ísafjörður and Hnífsdalur in the West Fjords yesterday, visir.is reports. A video of the mudslide can be viewed here

Winds of 10 to 20 m/s and rain are forecast for West Iceland today. The strongest wind and most precipitation is forecast for Northwest Iceland. The weather will be mostly dry in the southwest of the country and there will be less rain in the east.

Increasing northwesterly wind with considerable precipitation is forecast for Northeast Iceland until tomorrow afternoon. There will be less rainfall in the south. Temperatures of 6ºC (43ºF) to 14ºC (57ºF) are forecast with the mildest temperatures in the southwest.
