  • Avalanches: 

    Avalanches: 

    In the summer and autumn, avalanche bulletins are published only in the event of heavy snowfall.
    Even if the SLF does not publish an avalanche bulletin, due consideration is to be given to the avalanche situation especially if snow has fallen recently.
    The criteria governing the publication of an avalanche bulletin in the summer and autumn are described in the Interpretation Guide.
    Depending on the snow and avalanche situation, the regular publication of avalanche bulletin recommences in November/December.

Waldbrand  (Stand: 09.08.2022, 11:00 Uhr)

Aktuelle Situation

Die zu erwartenden Gewitter und Niederschläge bringen nur gebietsweise etwas Entspannung. Deshalb herrscht in der gesamten Schweiz weiterhin eine erhebliche bis sehr grosse Waldbrandgefahr. Vielerorts ist das Feuern verboten.

Prognose

Gemäss den Wettervorhersagen sind in allen Regionen keine ausreichenden Niederschläge zu erwarten. Damit dürfte auch die Waldbrandgefahr anhalten.
