Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Stigende temperaturer mandag vil igjen gjøre snøoverflaten våt og fuktig i de nederste høydene. Litt nysnø og kjøligere temperaturer søndag ga litt nysnø i overflaten også i lavlandet. I fjellet kan det ligge tørrere flak av fokksnø etter kraftig vind natt til søndag.

Lørdag ble det observert mange små løssnøskred i soleksponerte heng ved Indre Billefjord.

Høy mildværsgrense torsdag til lørdag har gjort snødekket vått og fuktig et stykke opp i fjellet. Mye av snøen som har de siste ukene har smeltet i lavere høyder.
