Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Snødekket har ingen utpregede svake lag. Brudd lar seg ikke initiere og forplanter seg heller ikke. Veldig lite snø begrenser skred til størrelse 1 (små). Forskjell mellom nord-/ og sørvendte sider, begrenser også utbredelse til (få bratte hend) Det er og har vært mye regnbyger. Det vil antagelig vedvare i noen dager. Men det ventes ikke å ha betydning for faregrad Forecast correct
