Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflata ber preg av kraftig vind og består av fokksnø av ulik hardleik. Laurdag vart det transportert mykje snø i heng mot aust og sør, mens det no er pågåande kraftig vind som gjev snøtransport til leområder mot nord og vest.

Det er lite snø i låglandet og generelt for årstida. Mest snø og lågast snøgrense finn ein i indre del av regionen.

Observasjonar tyder på at gammalt kantkornlag frå januar/februar framleis kan vere intakt i høgda, spesielt i indre deler av regionen.
