Avalanche warning for region Nord-Troms Saturday 27.05.2023

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Favorable conditions. Rain and heat give increased danger of wet avalanches. Glide avalanches are possible.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Loose snow

Below you can see a description of the current snow cover information and current weather forecast in the mountains. If your observations deviate greatly from what is described here, the warning will not necessarily apply either. Always make your own judgments or stay away from avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Friday 26. May 2023

Snøoverflata har vore våt heilt til fjelltopphøgd. Torsdag og fredag kom det litt nysnø i fjellet.

Snødekket er for det meste smelteomvandla, men ein må framleis rekne med å finne lagdelt snø ved dei høgaste fjelltoppane.

Det er lite snø igjen under 300-500 moh.

Mountain weather

Friday 26. May 2023

10-14 mm precipitation. Rain up to 600 m a.s.l during renoon. Fresh breeze from southwest, changing to strong breeze from the west during renoon. -6 °C to 0 °C at 1100 m a.s.l. Cloudy.

Saturday 27. May 2023

3-6 mm precipitation. Rain up to 1000 m a.s.l during the evening. Fresh breeze from west, changing to strong breeze from the south during the evening. -6 °C to 2 °C at 1100 m a.s.l. Cloudy.


The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Avalanche risk assessment

Der det kjem regn på nysnøen som falt på fredag kan det løsne små våte laussnøskred. Ver merksam på at der det heng igjen skavlar kan det vere fare for at skavlane kan brekke og falle ned. Der det ligg igjen snø på bratte svaberg kan det også vere fare for glideskred.
