Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Den siste tida har mildvêr og sol påverka snødekket. Det har vore stor snøsmelting og snøgrensa har blitt noko høgare. Snøen er dei fleste stadar smelteomdanna, og blir våt når det er sol, og frys om natta. Det finnast likevel lagdelt snø. Dei tidlegare vedvarande svake laga av kantkorn har starta å bli avrunda, men det kan ikkje utelukkast at dei framleis kan føre til skred.
