Der det ligger sammenhengende snø består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av vindpåvirket snø av varierende hardhet. Det gamle og stedvis beskjedne snødekket antas stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing. Det er generelt lite snø i regionen.

Få observasjoner de siste dagene. Opp mot 25 cm nysnø i fjellet mandag morgen.
