    The colour tells you how severe the situation can become (hjelp.yr.no)

  3. Applies to deler av Nordland og Troms

    Landslides are expected, some with considerable consequences. Large slides may reach settlements, roads and railways. Risk of slushflows is especially high in areas with more than 50 cm snow. The snow may in some places be fully water-saturated. Slushflows are triggered even in relatively gentle slopes, where water accumulates. Slushflows follow terrain depressions and may develop into debris flows. Rain is expected, followed by heavy showers in some places. Relatively high temperatures and windy conditions causes significant snowmelting.
