Interesting video of an avalanche or "snow worm", in Passeiertal, Italian south Tyrol on February 06. 2014.
A winter storm warning is in effect until Friday morning at 4am. 6 to 10'' of new snow has fallen along the Sierra Crest above 7800' overnight with an expected 1 to 2' of snowfall for areas above 7000' today. Higher amounts are expected along the Sierra Crest. Strong to gale force SW winds have been in the 40 to 55mph range with gusts up to 80mph over ridges. Snowfall is expected to increase into the morning and also in the afternoon hours. A brief break in snowfall is expected Friday with another storm expected Friday night into Saturday.
The mild temperatures in the snowy regions cause great avalanche danger. The road between Täsch and Zermatt has been closed since Sunday night.
In the night on Monday the road Täsch-Zermatt was closed until further notice. According to the notification, the closure is due to avalanche danger./bo
