Something strange just happened to me at work (for
those that don't know, I'm an aviation
meteorologist. The station Keflavik in southwest
Iceland is reporting volcanic ash in the area as of 0700
Zulu time. The satellite shows an ash looking cloud
that came from the Katla area from about 22 hours
The weird thing is that there is no VAAC messages,
SIGMETS or even any news on this. The good news is
that whatever it was, ash or not, it is dissipating.
If this volcano really does blow, it will likely shadow
the mess that happened last year when the volcano next to
it went off.
