Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Gunstige forhold. Kompakt bærende snøoverflate til tross for manglende nattefrost. Relativt kjølig og minimalt med solinnstråling begrenser faren for våte løssnøskred. Glideskred kan fortsatt forekomme. Muligheter for noe mer sol i morgen øker faren for vått løst i sør. Ellers status quo. Forecast correct Fint varsel nå.
