SMHI has issued a orange warning regarding wind and snow in the Northern Lapland mountains. The warning applies from 27 February at 02:00 – 2 Marc at 06:00.

Late night on Monday at bare mountain an increasing westerly or northwesterly wind in combination with snow showers. Risk of storm winds, 25-30 m/s, in the higher mountain parts. Tuesday morning decreasing.

How can this affect me?

  • No hiking is recommended in mountainous areas.
  • Rescue efforts in mountain environment can be risky and may take a long time.
  • Very difficult to move and set up or anchor tents.
  • Very difficult to orientate due to severely reduced visibility.
