Snøoverflaten består hovedsakelig av fokksnø med varierende hardhet, vindutsatte områder er avblåst med skare eller barmark. Det gamle snødekket anses som stabilt etter "Gyda" og gjenfrysing, unntatt høyt til fjells. Generelt lite snø i lavlandet og i ytre del. Mest snø i indre og høyereliggende del av regionen.

Mandag meldte observatør om 20-25 cm nysnø i Jølster og Stryn, tirsdag 10 cm nysnø og vindtransport over 7-800 moh på Utvikfjellet. Stedvis har vinden påvirket snøen under skoggrensa. "Gyda" har fuktet snødekket til bunns opp til i hvert fall 1000 moh, også i indre strøk.
