Notification of very bad weather during the weekend
Governor has received the following notice from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute in Tromsø:
Sunday, a strong low pressure system passing northeast of the Fram Strait. This will give a lot of wind and precipitation on Svalbard during Sunday.
Sunday morning, southeasterly storm is expecting. Blowing snow will give very poor visibility conditions. Gradually rising temperature.
Governor urges everybody who intends to go on trip to take into account this weather notification.
Uversbreen - update
Pictures from September and December 2014 show that Uversbreen is still moving/surging. Note that it is normal to record lower speed during the cold season.
The fact that the ice of Uversbreen is currently moving much faster than other land-terminating glaciers means that it is bound to be crevassed, and all parts of it should be assumed risky for travel.
Consider alternative routes.
