Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Det har kommet mye nysnø i regionen. I høyden er snøoverflaten preget av fokksnø med varierende hardhet. I terreng skjermet for vind og i skogen er det stedvis mye løs snø. Vindutsatte områder er avblåst til bakken eller skare. Det gamle snødekket antas stabilt etter "Gyda" og gjenfrysing, unntatt i de høyestliggende områdene.

Observatør melder om flere store og opptil svært store skred i Oppdalsområdet de siste dagene i forbindelse med uvær. Onsdag melder observatør om kraftig snøfokk nord i Trollheimen.
