The backcountry touring conditions are spring-like.
The early morning will see generally favourable conditions. In steep terrain there is a danger of falling on the hard snow surface. This applies in particular on very steep sunny slopes.
As a consequence of warming during the day and the solar radiation, the likelihood of moist loose snow avalanches being released will increase a little, especially on extremely steep sunny slopes at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions.
The somewhat older wind slabs are mostly small and unlikely to be released now. Individual avalanche prone locations are to be found on near-ridge shady slopes in high Alpine regions.
During the night the weather will be clear over a wide area. Outgoing longwave radiation during the night will be good. The surface of the snowpack will freeze to form a strong crust. Sunshine and high temperatures will give rise as the day progresses to slight softening of the snowpack on sunny slopes. These weather conditions will bring about a slight weakening of the near-surface layers in the afternoon in particular on very steep sunny slopes.
The new snow and wind slabs of the last few days have bonded well with the old snowpack. The old snowpack will be stable over a wide area. In all regions only a small amount of snow is lying for the time of year. At low and intermediate altitudes from a snow sport perspective, in most cases insufficient snow is lying.
Slight increase in avalanche danger in the course of the day.
