Weather & road conditions
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of weather and climate in Iceland is the sudden change in weather. Mild and sunny conditions can turn into wet and cold without much notice. Therefor it is of great importance to monitor the weather and check regularly on weather forcasts.
The Icelandic Meteology Office provides weather forcasts for different regions within Vatnajökull National Park:
Ásbyrgi (north area)
Eyjabakkar (east area - highlands)
Skaftafell (south area)
Jökulheimar (west area - highlands)
The Icelandic Road Administration has information about road condition, weather and other such basic information that can assist the foreign traveller in Iceland. A real-time monitoring of road conditions is especially useful, not least during winter time and when planning for entering the highlands.
