Large amounts of rain are expected in the warning area. The precipitation is expected as rain in low lying areas. Large snow melting due to rising temperatures is expected. The amount of precipitation is somewhat uncertain. Follow the weather radar.

The combination of rain and continuous snow melting will increase water discharge. Rapid increase of discharge in small and medium sized rivers is expected. Water discharge is expected to rise in the major rivers. Hydropower production will in some cases act as flood control, and therefore the issued warning will not necessarily apply to all regulated waterways.
