Topic - Avalanche reports

Quick questions looking at the SAIS report for Nth Cairngorms.

Given the conditions what would cause cornice collapse im guessing the cornices are getting pretty big (heavy) rather than anything temp related .

And cross loading what is this exactly ? From the description sound likes its very localised wind slab formation ( with in a gully or slope )?

cheers
