Snow Cover

Surface hoar on a soft surface Rimkrysraller observert fra ca 1100moh og opp til toppen av Horndalsnuten. Kombinasjonen tynt snødekke og kald nok temp over ca 1100 ser ut til å ha dannet det. Usikker på hvordan det er i andre himmelretninger. 5-10cm løs, tørr snø under rim, skare under der igjen fra 1100 og opp. Fra 1100moh og ned har solen virket og det er skare tidlig på dagen, slush senere på dagen
