Description:
Small loose snow avalanches may run out of steep terrain anywhere that the new snow does not bond with underlying old crusts. Nothing too big is likely but it will still pay to avoid places where debris could be channelled or pile up deep enough to be a problem. Watch out for a solar avalanche cycle when things warm up or the sun comes out next.
