Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Eldre snødekke har fått varme opp mot dei høgaste toppane. Kaldare netter og noko vind har gitt uttørking og skaredanning. Det er finkorna snødekke på dei høgaste toppane. Det er store snømengder i høgfjellet og toppskavlar er mange stader store. Moderate mengder fokksnø etter snøfall siste dagar.

Varme har tatt bort lagdelinga i eldre snødekke opp til omlag skoggrensa, men over dette nivået er lagdeling intakt og snødekket drenerer dårlig. Ellers ikkje relevante svake lag.
