Landslide

Some slushflows are expected. A few large events may occur. Exposed railways and roads may be closed. 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.
