Avalanche conditions

Snow is generally isothermal and rather stable. Unstable wind slabs might exist in upper part of mountains in some areas. Wet avalanches might release where sun shines on the slopes. Seismic activity in Reykjanes peninsula could increase instability, especially if the activity moves towards the east.
