Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

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

Få observasjoner de siste dagene, men det er også lite snø.
