With the precipitation, falling as rain, the top few centimetres of the snowpack will become saturated and lose cohesion with a MODERATE possibility of loose wet slides on steeper terrain.
Although the size and width of area involved is likely to be small, there is still a hazard of these types of avalanches to take you off your feet and/or sweep you into terrain with a dangerous runout.
Plan you trip with care if travelling in snow covered zones.

For the most part, there is a stable and consolidated snow pack with a predominance of wet grains. The permanent snow line has retreated for the most part to above 2000m and the Glacial regions. Late weekend and early in the week you can expect the top few centimetres to be saturated wet grains.
Rain, at times heavy with moderate Northerly winds swinging to the SE and dropping on Monday morning
