In the Carpathians there may be avalanches

Cloudy weather was observed last day in the highlands. In the afternoon it was snowing lightly, rainfall reached about 3 mm.  The temperature during the day was 7-9°C below zero. 
During the day cloudy weather, sometimes light snow is expected. Southwest wind will be about 5-10 m/s.The temperature during the day will be 2-4°C and 4-6°C below zero at night. 

Snow cover on steep slopes is not fixed (moderately or poorly) and not compacted, so avalanches are possible with a little additional load on steep slopes. Spontaneous asccent of small and medium-sized avalanches and cornices is possible. 

February 4 in the highlands of Transcarpathian region the avalanche hazard will still remain.
