Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

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.

Det ble meldt om kraftig snøfokk i fjellet torsdag.
