Today we had to cancel all mountain tours due to bad visibility, rain and wind on Snæfellsjökull glacier. We expect hourly precipitation to reach up to 7.5mm on the mountain later today.
The picture above shows hourly precipitation for 18:00 tonight.
Current conditions, Gufuskálar Base @ 10:00, August 8th.
Wind from south, 180° - 7 meters per second.
Dew Point: 5°C
Precipitation past 24 hours: 0 mm
The outlook for next days is mixed, Wednesday looks good but we expect higher winds from the north and possibly light rain on Thursday... long term forecast for the weekend looks all right.
