Favourable avalanche situation continues
Low danger due to sporadic glide-snow avalanches below 2500 m which can grow to medium size. In exposed high altitude terrain, small avalanche prone locations due to small but trigger-sensitive snowdrifts on steep ridgeline slopes.
Covid-19 notice: The Salzburg Avalanche Bulletin will continue to be published in the covid-19 situation so that fundamental information will enable residents to better evaluate potential dangers to infrastructure and settlements. For purposes of accident prevention, we urge the public to exercise responsible, defensive behaviour so that rescue and health services are not unnecessarily burdened by accidents.
The small amount of fresh snow from the last few days was and still is being transported in exposed high alpine zones (E/NE winds on Wednesday, S/SE on Thursday) though the dry air sublimates the snow to some extent. The old snow on sunny slopes is much moistened up to over 2000 m and superficially encrusted. At intermediate altitudes the reserves of cold are low, but the current temperatures are lending the snowpack higher firmness temporarily.
Alpine Weather Forecast (ZAMG Salzburg)
Skies on Wednesday night will be slightly cloudy. In Lungau and on the Main Alpine Ridge, dense clouds will persist, some snowfall is possible.
Short Term Development
Little change to begin with.
