Is there a lot of snow on the ground at the moment?

I am due to visit Reykjavik on Thursday and am really unsure about footwear. I have a pair of timberlands that’s are comfortable for sight seeing etc. They have a Waterproof cover on them at the moment. I don’t want to bring them if there is a lot of snow. Looking for some advice please as have never been to Iceland before so do not know what to expect. Thank you :)

Plenty of webcams out there you can look at (in a few hours when the sun rises) to see how much snow there is in most any part of Iceland.

Why don't you want to bring the Timberlands if there's snow?

Your footwear should be waterproof, and warm, and cover at least up your ankle. There's no snow in Reykjavík at the moment, but that is bound to change, naturally. Today's weather conditions have nothing to do with tomorrow's. You have to be prepared for anything :)

Have fun in Iceland, and hopefully with warm and dry feet :)))) (it really helps when trying to enjoy the day out...)

Webcams were great for driving, but what about walking in Reykjavik

Webcams were great for motor travel, but what about walking in the city?
