The Avalanche Warning Service currently has only a small amount of information that has been collected in the field.
As a consequence of a sometimes strong northerly wind, rather small wind slabs formed in places that are protected from the wind. This applies in particular at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. The avalanches are rather small and can mostly be released by large loads.
Intermediate altitudes: As a consequence of warming during the day and solar radiation there will be only a slight increase in the danger of gliding avalanches and moist snow slides, in particular on steep sunny slopes.
dp 6: cold, loose snow and wind
As a consequence of the strong wind the wind slabs have increased in size moderately. These are lying on soft layers in particular on steep shady slopes. The wind slabs are lying on a crust on east to south to west facing aspects. The surface of the snowpack will freeze to form a strong crust and will hardly soften at all. In very isolated cases weak layers exist in the old snowpack, in particular on steep, little used shady slopes above approximately 2200 m.
At low altitude no snow is lying.
Low avalanche danger will persist.
