Mildvær og solinnstråling har påvirka snødekket til topps. Kaldare netter gir tilfrysing. Grovkorna snø lågt i fjellet. I høgda er snødekket meir finkorna og lagdelt.

Kantkornlag høgt i snødekket er i ferd med å bli varmepåvirka og vil gradvis bli borte. I høgda er det tjukkare kantkornlag ved bakken.
