Large amounts of rain are expected in the warning area. Rising temperatures will lead to high snow melting also in the high mountains. Rain is expected mostly in the inner areas. 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. Hydropower production will in some cases act as flood control, and therefore the issued warning will not necessarily apply to all regulated waterways.
