    Moderate danger

Considerable snow is in mountains in the area. Snow is generally isothermal and considered rather stable, but wind slabs may still exist in upper part of mountains. Solar radiation might release wet loose avalanches in south-facing slopes.

The avalanche bulletin is at a regional scale. It does not necessarily represent avalanche danger in urban areas.

Avalanche problems in the area

Wind slabs might exist in the highest mountains, especially in north facing slopes.

Snow layers and snow cover

The thaw last week penetrated the entire snowpack high up to the mountains making the snow isothermal and wet. Due to lower temperatures the last few days the snow is considered stable. Wind slabs may still exist in the highest mountains where temperatures have remained cold. Little snow is in lower elevations. Some new snow is expected on Saturday. Wet loose avalanches might fall, especially in the afternoon where the sun shines on the slopes.

Recent avalanches

No reports of new avalanches.

Weather forecast

Light southwest or variable winds the next days, above freezing in the lowland but colder high in the mountains. Some showers or snow showers on early Saturday but otherwise dry and fair or partly fair. Some precipitation on Monday evening.

Forecast made: 05 Mar 16:48 GMT. Valid until: 06 Mar 19:00 GMT.
