Weather forecast forSteinhjemmet, Kvænangen (Troms)

  1. Applies to Nord-Noreg

    Heavy rain is expected. Relatively high temperatures and windy conditions, causes significant snowmelting. Snowmelting will occur even in the high mountains Significant snowmelting will occur in the valleys. The amount of water in the soil is significant. Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. Risk of slush flows is especially high in areas with more than 40 cm snow. The snow may in some places be fully water-saturated. Slush flows are triggered even in relatively gentle slopes, where water accumulates. Slush flows follow terrain depressions and may develop into debris flows. Debris flows may reach the valley bottom even if they are triggered high in the terrain.
