We would like to share the latest update on the Icelandic volcano by accu-weather.com.
The Icelandic volcano is showing reduced activity, and most airports across Europe have enjoyed more than a week of ash-free skies. Since the last bout of major airport closures on May 16, which affected Heathrow and Gatwick in London, the ash plume has been decreasing in size.
According to an Icelandic Met Office assessment made Monday morning, the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull has been reduced to a plume of steam and no magma is being released. The current elevation of the cloud is between 7,000 and 10,000 ft.
Provided the volcano activity continues to subside, AccuWeather.com meteorologists said prevailing winds should keep any ash north of Europe. The cloud remains just south of Iceland.
Volcanic experts out of London’s Met Office reported on Sunday that Eyjafjallajokull could continue to erupt, and at a higher intensity in coming days. Eruptions have been erratic, and there is much uncertainty as to how long the decreased activity will last.
