Mountain passes and many other roads in the West Fjords, North Iceland and the East Fjords were subject to snowfall last night, causing snowy and slippery driving conditions. The Icelandic Met Office has forecasts sleet or rain in North and East Iceland today.

Travelers intending to drive Dynjandisheiði, Steingrímsfjarðarheiði and to Árneshreppur in the West Fjords should be aware of the winter conditions, ruv.is reports.

Parts of Siglufjarðarvegur in North Iceland are icy and there are icy and/or snowy conditions on the roads across Fjarðarheiði, Vatnsskarð eystra, Mjóifjörður, Möðrudalsöræfi, Vopnafjarðarheiði, Breiðdalsheiði and Öxi in East Iceland.

Due to repairs, parts of the road by Dettifoss waterfall in Northeast Iceland are only passable for 4x4 vehicles.

The weather is currently sunny in Reykjavík and South Iceland but conditions are expected to turn cloudy with some rain in the afternoon.
