Avalanche Problems

Loose wet avalanche Loose snow Easy to trigger 2 - Medium SE, S, SW above 800 masl

Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Generelt stabilt snødekke med sterke bindinger. Skredproblem er knyttet til soloppvarming av snøen. Timing er viktig for å finne god og trygg snø. Holder seg som i dag, men varmere vær bil utvide skredproblem til større del av ø og v også Forecast correct Fint varsel

Snow Cover

Det et stabilt kaldt vær som gir soloppvarming i snøen der sola får tak. Mest i bratt s. Skarelag i n har tørket ut litt de siste dagene og bryter lettere enn på mandag. Finner ingen svake lag av betydning, men under tynne skarelag skjer det oppbyggende omvandling. Det er stor temperaturgradient mange steder og spesielt der det er tynne skarelaf bygges kantkorn. Foreløpig bare sett små- under 1mm.
