Snow cover (in Norwegian)

I fjellet er det blitt dannet myke fokksnøflak i enkelte heng de siste dagene. Snøoverflaten ellers er frossen og hard i skyggesider over mildværsgrensa, og våt og myk under mildværsgrensa og der solen tar. Snøgrensa ligger på 200-300moh.

Det finnes fortsatt lagdelt snø høyt til fjells. Vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn er i ferd med å smelteomvandles, men det kan ikke utelukkes at de fremdeles kan føre til skred i enkelte heng ved svært stor belastning eller oppvarming.
