Weather and road conditions in Iceland can be very unpredictable and sometimes dangerous.
You should always get as much information as possible before going on the road and never, ever underestimate the power of a storm! Winds can be sometimes so powerful that they send rocks flying through the air, which can sometimes break car windows.
When a big storm is approaching, it is always better to stay inside with a nice cup of coffee rather than risk being trapped in the snow or having to call the rescue team. You can find all the information you need at en.vedur.is for the weather forecast and at www.road.is for the road conditions. Drive carefully and stay safe on the road! DO NOT IN ANY CONDITION STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!
