Level 2

Avalanche danger increases during the course of the morning from moderate to considerable. Likelihood of wet-snow avalanches triggering swiftly rises, which can often sweep along wet old snow and grow to medium size, esp. on very steep slopes and in rough and rocky terrain on S/E/W facing slopes up to high alpine regions and on north-facing slopes up to 2600 m. On steep wind-protected slopes in extended north-facing terrain, small-to-medium loose-snow avalanches are possible. The danger of glide-snow avalanches is again increasing. They are possible in all aspects and at any time of day or night. In high starting zones which have not yet discharged they can be medium-sized and plummet down to greenlands, esp. from starting zones where there is still sufficient snow on the ground on N/E facing slopes. Avoid zones below glide cracks. Also previously bare slopes can release glide-snow avalanches.

The snowpack on north-facing slopes is up to 2600 m isotherm and moist, on E/W facing slopes up to 3000 m, and on south-facing slopes up to summit levels. On sunny slopes, many areas below 1800 m are again bare of snow. The moist sticky fresh snow has bonded well and forms a thin melt-freeze crust during the night, then quickly softening in the morning. Sun and warmth are making the snowpack ever wetter. In steep grass-covered terrain which has not yet discharged, glide-snow avalanches can release and plummet down to bare slopes.

Avalanche danger levels are not expected to change significantly. Daytime cycle of avalanche activity. Beware gliding snow.

Level 2

Avalanche danger is MODERATE. Due to rising temperatures and lots of solar radiation, glide-snow avalanches continue to be the main danger: in all aspects at any time of day or night, medium-sized when triggering from terrain which has not yet discharged, plummeting down to greenlands, esp. in starting zones in NW/N/E facing terrain. Avoid zones below glide-cracks. As the day progresses, likelihood of small loose-snow slides will increase on sunny slopes and in rough and rocky terrain in all aspects, esp. on very steep W/N/E facing slopes above 2200m.

The bit of fresh snow from Wednesday has bonded and consolidated, became moistened on Thursday in all aspects. Due to nocturnal outgoing radiation, a thin melt-freeze crust forms, softening quickly the next day. Beneath it the snowpack öon W/N/E facing slopes is often isotherm and moistened down to the ground. On sunny slopes the fresh snow has already melted, the slopes are becoming bare again. In steep grass-covered terrain which has not yet discharged, glide-snow avalanches can release and plummet down to bare slopes.

Avalanche danger levels are not expected to change significantly. Daytime cycle of avalanche activity. Beware gliding snow.

Level 1

Avalanche danger is low. Only few glide-snow avalanches are possible. In high starting zones medium sized releases are possible. Avoid zones below glide cracks. Small wet loose-snow avalanches are possible during the course of the day.

The snowpack is well settled and sticky-to-wet over widespread areas.

Avalanche danger levels are not expected to change significantly.

Nockberge

Level 1

Avalanche danger is low. Naturally triggered glide-snow avalanches are possible in isolated cases in terrain which has not yet discharged in all aspects, medium releases cannot be ruled out.

At night, a melt-freeze crust forms, swiftly melting in the daytime. At least on north facing slopes, there is potential for medium-sized glide-snow avalanches. On sunny slopes there is too little snow on the ground.

Avalanche danger levels are not expected to change significantly. Daytime cycle of avalanche activity. Beware gliding snow.
