Der det ligger sammenhengende snødekke i høyden består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av fokksnø av varierende hardhet. Det gamle snødekket antas stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing, unntatt i de aller høyestliggende områdene. Det er generelt lite snø.

Det ble søndag rapportert om snøfokk i høyfjellet.
