Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Saturday 01.05.2021

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Naturally released avalanches can occur in sun exposed steep terrain.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Advice

The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Det har vært perioder med snøbyger den siste uka, og det har kommet 10-20cm nysnø som har lagt seg over et solid skarelag etter mildvær i midten av april. Torsdag ettermiddag og kveld ventes kraftige snøbyger og mye vind fra NV-N.

Det finnes et vedvarende svakt lag av kantkorn/begerkrystaller ved bakken. I lavlandet er laget gjennomfuktet og på vei mot avrunding, og det skal mye til for å få påvirke det svake laget nå.

5 mm precipitation, up to 15 mm in the most exposed areas. Strong breeze from northwest, changing to gale from the northwest during the evening. -10 °C to -7 °C at 700 m a.s.l. Cloudy.
