Higher temperatures, less rain
According to updated forecasts from NVE there will be higher temperatures, but less rain than expected. This reduces the risks of slush avalanches. So far, no avalanches are observed around Longyearbyen.
The measures taken to keep the waterways open are maintained. This concerns both Vannledningsdalen and the water drains by the road to the airport. The footbridge between Road 220 and 200 (Perleporten) is still closed.
Longyearbyen Community Council and The Governor are monitoring the situation closely. Updated information will be announced when necessary.
