    Severity
    Yellow severity - moderate danger
    Orange severity - considerable danger
    Red severity - extreme danger
    The colour tells you how severe the situation can become (hjelp.yr.no)

    InstructionsTravelling in avalanche terrain is not recommended. Avalanches may hit avalanche-exposed roads and settlements.

  2. Applies to deler av Trøndelag og deler av Nordland

    Landslides may be expected. Exposed railways and roads may be closed. 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. Heavy snowmelt is expected. Heavy rain is expected.

    Orange severity - considerable danger
    Red severity - extreme danger
    The colour tells you how severe the situation can become (hjelp.yr.no)

    InstructionsKeep water paths and culverts free of snow, ice, gravel, waste, twigs and leaves. Clogged waterways with dammed water may cause landslides.

    ConsequencesLandslides may be expected. Exposed railways and roads may be closed.

  3. Applies to Nordland og deler av Troms

    Water discharge is expected to increase because of rain and snowmelt. This may cause local inundation where river channels are filled with ice and because of frozen ground. It also may cause ice drift in streams, with subsequent local inundation. Local flooding and erosion damage. Large amounts of rain are expected in the warning area.

The weather radar page has moved

We have changed the resolution of the radar images from 7,5 minutes to 5 minutes. This has resulted in a heavy load on our back-end systems, forcing us to shut down this page. You can still find the same map on our new website.
