Description:
The avalanche danger remains at Low, with the spring time conditions on the m,mountain use care around steep unsupported slopes in the afternoon as solar radiation and day time temperatures take its affect on the snow pack. As Monday heats up keep a close eye on the new snow we have had over night as this will be affected by the warm temperatures quickly. We ares expecting a cool down with possible snow showers on the mountain but will have to wait and see how much this next weather system affects Taranaki.
