No, it is absolutely impossible to predict.

You can look at the road conditions on this site:

I have driven this route in March and had appalling conditions, almost total whiteout in a blizzard. We traveled very slowly, the back seat passengers watching the side of the road and front passenger helping the driver. The Icelandic drivers were very good with everyone driving at a slow speed. The road was covered in blowing snow.

Another time in March perfect blue sky and no wind. Mostly i am sure you will have mo problems. So no one can predict what it will be like.

Good luck.

We got back 2 days ago from a week in Reykjavik and drove most days to Selfoss. The road is an excellent highway, however as has been said no one can predict the weather.
