Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Høyt til fjells har det kommet litt nysnø i helgen. Ellers er snøpakken hard og gjenfryst skarepakke over mildværsgrensa, mens under mildværsgrensa og der solen eventuelt står på finnes våtere og mykere snø. Snøgrensa har den siste tiden krøpet oppover og ligger nå på rundt 100-300moh de fleste steder.

I høyden finnes det fortsatt både harde skarelag der vann kan hope seg opp og gamle kantkornlag lenger ned i snødekket.
