Large snow melting due to rising temperatures is expected. Catchments with no snow are not flood prone. Continuous snow melting will increase water discharge in rivers. From sunday expected to reach yellow level. The discharge is expected to further increase throughout next week (week no. 23). Hydropower production will in some cases act as flood control, and therefore the issued warning will not necessarily apply to all regulated waterways.

Weather radar for Nordland and Troms
The map shows where precipitation (rain, sleet, snow etc) falls, the colour giving an indication of the amount.
By emitting radar waves the radar registers how precipitation moves . It will then receive echoes if the waves hit precipitation particles. The animation shows precipitation during the last hours, the last picture in the sequence being the most recent. The time at which it was taken is given (in local time) in the upper right corner.
Under certain conditions the radar waves are deflected and hit the ground instead, giving false echoes. False echoes can be recognised by being fairly motionless.
