Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Store deler av snødekket er smelteomvandlet og homogent, men søndag ble det meldt om mye vann i snøen under 1300 moh. Det er fortsatt mye snø i fjellet. Snøgrensa er omtrent på 500 moh, høyere i sørvendte hellinger.

I høytliggende breområder både i Nordfjord og Sogn har det vært observert drønn i snøen de siste dagene. Observasjon i Sogn tilsier at det er løs, smelteomvandlet snø som kollapser.
