Avalanche forecast for Sunnmøre Tuesday 2019-03-26

3
Considerable
Published:

Wet loose avalanches are the biggest problem, the danger increases in the afternoon, when the temperature rises. Above the new snow line, the danger will increase in lee areas. Highest avalanche danger in the western part of the region.

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Loose snow

Avoid avalanche release and run out areas. Wet snow avalanches tend to release spontaneously. Timing is important. Stability decreases when the snow surface gets wet and soft.
2 - Medium
Spontaneous release
Widespread steep slopes
Possible

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Avoid terrain traps and steep slopes until the new snow has stabilized. The avalanche problem is generally widely distributed on any steep slope with deep new snow. Look for cohesive new snow that breaks apart or is poorly bonded to the old snow. Cracks around your skis are a typical dangersign.
2 - Medium
Low additional load
Specific steep slopes
Possible

Avalanche Danger Assessment

3 Considerable Betydelig skredfare (vurdert fra veg). Det kommer en del nedbør i form av regn. Dette kombinert med temperaturstigning gir oss en litt usikker situasjon mht ras. Forholdsvis moderate snømengder noe som sannsynligvis gjør risiko for ras ned til veg for liten.. FV63 Geiranger - Eidsdal er mest utsatt. Minkende skredfare neste døgn: Det er meldt mindre nedbør og litt kjøligere temperaturer..
