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.
