Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

Generally there is no snow in lower parts of mountains and some snow above 500 m. No avalanches have been recorded but some small ones have been observed. East and northeasterly winds the next days, mostly dry and cool so snow will not melt. Strong easterly wind on Wednesday with sleet or snow in mountains. Becoming warmer on Thursday with rain, considerable rain in the East fjords. Possibility of small wet avalanches then.
