Avalanche warning for region Nord-Troms Friday 06.05.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Where the snow is dry, wind slabs can easily be triggered or released naturally. As the temperature rises during the day, the probability of wet loose snow and slab avalanches increases. If persistent weak layers are affected by people or weather, large avalanches can occur.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

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

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

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)

Snøoverflata vil gradvis bli påverka av mildvêr og regn utover dagen. Den tidlegare vindpåverka eller lause snøen vil bli fuktig opp til mildvêrsgrensa og halde seg tørr over.

I overgangen mellom gamal fuktig snø og den tørre snøen som har kome den siste tida er det eit skarelag. Høg temperaturgradient gjer at det lokalt har danna seg kantkorn rundt dette. Likevel verkar det som at dei fleste stadar er korna små eller ikkje utvikla god nok til å utgjere eit skredproblem.
