The Icelandic Road Administration cautions drivers of the hazard created by swelling rivers in East Iceland, following a period of heavy rain, RÚV reports. The road by Naustá river in Fáskrúðsfjörður fjord is inundated with water, and travelers are asked to show caution. Roads in Breiðdalur valley, Berufjörður fjord and Skriðdalur valley are also flooded. A mudslide fell in Vattarnesskriður and that road is impassable.

Many roads in South Iceland are icy or have patchy ice. There is patchy ice on roads in West Iceland, and Holtavörðuheiði mountain pass is icy. Mountain roads in the West Fjords are icy, but roads are clear at low elevations.

In North Iceland, some roads are icy or with icy spots. The road to Dettifoss waterfall is icy.

Roads along the southeast coast are clear.
