Check out the new and improved website containing information on road and weather conditions


Road Conditions and Weather

Information on road conditions is entered on the map from 7:00 - 22:00 and are displayed there almost immediately. Outside these hours, information remains unchanged and is erased at some point after midnight.

Weather information comes from automatic weather stations and is therefore updated on a 24-hour basis. Weather forecasts can be found at the Icelandic Meteorological Office homepage.

A map showing road conditions in different regions may be obtained by clicking on the appropriate place on the map of Iceland above; a map of the entire country can be had by clicking on the center of the map. The maps contain general explanations in English; more detailed explanations can be found here.

If an old date appears on a map the most likely reason is that an old map has been cached on the user's computer or a computer it is communicating with. In that case the most recent map may be obtained by clicking the Reload button (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera) or Refresh button (Internet Explorer).
