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, mest i indre strøk.

Observatør meldte om 15 cm nysnø mandag.
