    Relatively high temperatures causes significant snowmelting. Groundwater and soil moisture are high. The soil is water-saturated. The issued warning is in the lower part of the warning level. Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge, are particularly exposed. Risk of slushflows is especially high in areas with more than 50 cm snow. The snow may in some places be fully water-saturated. Slushflows are triggered even in relatively gentle slopes, where water accumulates. Slushflows follow terrain depressions and may develop into debris flows.
