Avalanche warning for region Svartisen Wednesday 14.02.2024

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
At some spots, it may be easy to trigger large avalanches in the fresh wind slabs. A persistent weak layer of facets may also be triggered, especially where the snow cover is thin as over convex terrain formations. Avoid steep terrain if shooting cracks and other danger signs are observed.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Buried weak layer of new snow

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

You can trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

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)

Tuesday 13. February 2024

I vindutsatte områder er det avblåst ned til mildværskare, mens snøen har samlet seg og dannet fokksnøflak i leområder og forsenkinger. Noen steder har det lagt seg opp store mengder med fokksnø.

I andre deler av regionen, slik som i Beiarn, har det vært lite løs snø tilgjengelig for den kraftige vinden. Her er det avblåst og mindre mengder fokksnø i leområder.

Opp til 1000 moh, ligger det en massiv smeltepakke i bunn av snødekket etter mildværet i slutten av januar.

Under den nyeste fokksnøen er det observert at det ligger nedføyket overflaterim som er blandet med nysnø. Mellom fokksnøen fra sist helg og mildværspakken fra Ingunn har det dannet seg et vedvarende svakt lag av kantkorn. I helgen ble det meldt om faretegn som drønn og skytende sprekker opp mot Bomfjellet i Rana.

Tirsdag har det gått skred fra Kvitrona i Bjærangsfjorden, og det er meldt om et skiløperutløst skred i nordvendt terreng ned fra Reingardslitinden. Mandag er det observert et naturlig utløst skred ved Langvatnet nord for Storjord.

Mountain weather

Tuesday 13. February 2024

0-3 mm precipitation. Rain up to 100 m a.s.l during the afternoon. Strong gale from southeast. -18 °C to -10 °C at 1100 m a.s.l. Cloudy.

Wednesday 14. February 2024

3-6 mm precipitation. Precipitation as snow. Moderate gale from southeast. -19 °C to -10 °C at 1100 m a.s.l. Cloudy.

Advice

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

Kraftig vind har lagt opp store mengder med fokksnø i leområder. Stort sett er fokksnøflakene harde og vanskelig å påvirke, men enkelte steder kan det være lett å løse ut skred som kan bli store. Unngå områder hvor vinden har lastet inn mye snø de siste dagene.

Vær obs på at det kan være et vedvarende svakt lag i overgangen mellom fokksnø og gammel, smelteomvandlet snø. Det er vanskelig å påvirke dette laget siden det stort sett ligger under harde og massive fokksnøflak, men vær ekstra obs der fokksnøflakene er tynnere og mykere.
