Landslide

Risk of slushflows is especially high in areas with more than 50 cm snow. The snow may in some places be fully water-saturated. Slushflows are triggered even in relatively gentle slopes, where water accumulates. Slushflows follow terrain depressions and may develop into debris flows. Heavy rain is expected. Relatively high temperatures and windy conditions causes significant snowmelting. Some landslides are expected. A few large slides may occur. Exposed railways and roads may be closed.
