The residents of the capital area have received little snow this winter, as winter is the lightest snow in a hundred years in Reykjavík. This morning, however, the residents of the capital wake up to the white ground after snowfall tonight.
Start clearing streets, walking and cycling paths, but as usual it has snowed, traffic can be expected to be a bit slower than usual. Therefore, it is not out of the question for drivers and other road users to be careful and hurry slowly.
Eiríkur Örn Jóhannesson, a meteorologist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, says that the amount of snow has not been measured but however, it is likely that it is just over five centimeters compared to five millimeters of precipitation in Reykjavík.
He says that there is some chance of a little snowfall in the capital area before noon, but then it should be shortened and published. However, it is unlikely that the snow will cover everything; he should “survive” today and tomorrow.
Then there is no snow in the maps in the southwest corner, possibly some sleet or sleet in the afternoon tomorrow, but then rain is forecast.
