Avalanche warning for region Tromsø Wednesday 14.02.2024

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Southeasterly wind will give fresh wind slabs in lee areas. Be also aware that there might be a persistent weak layer in the snow pack.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

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 or even kill you (size 2).

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

Snøoverflata er prega av vind fra sør og sørøst. Siste nysnødryss var i helgen, men mye av dette ligger nå i le for sørøstlig vind fra tirsdag. Over skoggrensa veksler overflata mellom fokksnø av varierende hardhet og avblåst mildværsskare, samt avblåste rygger. I skogen finnes det løs snø.

I slutten av januar preget sterk vind fra nord og flere kortvarige mildvær snødekket. Tidvis var det plussgrader opp til 1000 moh. Dette har gitt flere skarelag og begynnende kantkorndannelse i snødekket. Stabilitetstester viste brudd i disse lagene, senest lørdag, men utbredelsen antas å være begrenset.

Mandag ble det observert flere str 1 naturlig utløste løssnøskred på Kvaløya.

Mandag ble det observert fersk vindtransportert snø i forbindelse med vindøkning fra sørøst.

Mountain weather

No precipitation. Fresh breeze from southeast, changing to strong breeze from the southeast during the evening. -16 °C to -5 °C at 700 m a.s.l. Cloudy.

Wednesday 14. February 2024

No precipitation. Strong breeze from southeast. -18 °C to -5 °C at 700 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

Etter kraftig vind tirsdag er det trolig lite løssnø å flytte på onsdag, men i utsatte områder der vinden er kraftigst kan det dannes nye fokksnøflak. Som skiløper kan du løse ut skred i den ferskeste fokksnøen.

Det finnes lag med kantkorn høyt i snødekket, i forbindelse med skarelag. Utbredelsen antas å være begrenset, men hold avstand til bratt terreng om du opplever drønn eller andre faretegn.
