Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten er våt og myk etter flere dager uten gjenfrysing. Smeltingen går nå raskt og snødekket er tynt i mange sørvendte heng. Rygger og rabber er bare, men i leheng ligger det fortsatt mye snø. Snødekket antas være omdannet til grovkornet snø og relativt homogent nå.

Temperaturen har gått noe ned fra mandag til tirsdag, og ligger under null over ca. 1400-1500 moh. I de aller høyeste omådene har det kommet litt nysnø siste døgn.
