Yesterday the Icelandic Met Office issued a warning that heavy rain is expected in south and west Iceland in the days ahead.  The temperature in Iceland is also supposed to be warm for this season so in addition to the rain, water is coming from the mountains and melting glaciers. The wind forecast is a south and southeast 13-20 m/s. This is not good news for those traveling in or near the Highland.  As there are many rivers in the Highland and Highland roads one has to cross; the situation becomes more difficult and often impossible under such circumstances.  A river that was o.k.

This news and warning from the Icelandic Met Office is only a reminder of how important it is to follow the weather when traveling in Iceland.
