Snow cover (in Norwegian), 26.05.2023

Snøoverflata har vore våt heilt til fjelltopphøgd. Torsdag og fredag kom det nysnø i fjellet.

Snødekket er for det meste smelteomvandla, men ein må framleis rekne med å finne lagdelt snø ved dei høgaste fjelltoppane.

Tysdag vart det observert to skred i Lavangsdalen. Måndag gjekk det eit stort skred ved Andersdaltinden.

Det er framleis godt med snø igjen i fjellet, men lite under 300-500 moh.
