Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten over skoggrensen er mange steder vindpakket og hard.

Det er i ferd med å utvikle seg lag av kantorn i snødekket, særlig i områder med lite snø.

Onsdag ble det observert skytende sprekker og et lite skiløperutløst skred i skoggrensa. Det gikk også et skred på veg i Lerresfjordbotn.

Ved Hammerfest er det generelt avblåst og lite snø, med bare 20 cm i søkk og renner.
