Weather stations and forecast

Fossavatnsgangan owns three weatherstations at HeiðinNónvatnin and Mid-fell neck.

Icelandic Met Office has a weather station at ski stadium Seljalandsdalur(the station is called Seljalandsdalur skíðaskáli in their systems). You could also want to get some indication from mount Þverfjall, although this mountain is higher and windier than the Fossavatnsgangan route.

The met office's forecast for the surrounding fjords can be seen here.
