Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Stabile forhold. Ver obs på våte laussnøskred der sola får tak. Best og mest stabilt skiføre tidleg på dag. Forecast correct

Snow Cover

Wet Generelt lite snø. Stort sett smelteomvandla i overflata. Tynn smelt-frysskare i skuggesidene i høgda - mot nord. Mot nord og dels tilgrensande sektor består snødekket av smelteformer med eit sjikt av ulike islag (p-k) midt i pakken. Dette brytes gradvis ned. I andre sektorar er det tilsynelatende smelteformer. Meir snø i nordsidene, naturlig nok.

Tests

LBT Stabilt. Ingen utslag anna enn i overgang på topplaget mellom skare og smelteformer.

Notes

Finpusser obs I kveld med litt flere bilete og tekst. Ingen obs som utfordrer dagens varsel.
