Avalanche danger in the Bavarian Alps: continuous rain has an impact

The authorities also warn of a significant avalanche risk in the Bavarian Alps. A single skier could trigger snowboard avalanches in the high areas, as the avalanche warning center announced. The reason is fresh snowdrift accumulations, the snow masses of which can slip even with a small additional load. The danger is also great on steep slopes. Avalanches that trigger themselves must be expected there.

The avalanche warning service therefore called warning level three in several Bavarian areas. The Allgäu, Ammergau, Werdenfels, Chiemgau and Berchtesgaden Alps and the Bavarian Prealps are affected. The persistent rain also has an impact. The avalanche danger threatens to increase. If the water penetrates to the bottom, snow cover can slide easily on the smooth surface. A cold front brings fresh snow on Tuesday - which in turn leads to fresh snow drift and thus an ongoing avalanche risk.

The levels will rise significantly on Monday afternoon.

On Tuesday, the Danube is expected to exceed reporting level 3 there . This means that individual built-up lots or cellars can be flooded or road closures threaten. Use of the water or dam weirs may also be necessary. According to the current forecast, notification level 4 can even be reached on Wednesday. Build-up areas could be flooded to a greater extent.
