Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Mildvær den siste uka har gjort snøoverflate våt og fuktig oppover i fjellet. På de høyeste toppene vil snøen fortsatt være mer vinterlig, og nysnø har dannet små flak som har stabilisert seg raskt.

Snødekket er generelt tynnere og fuktigere i sydlige himmelretninger, mens snødekket er tykkere og kaldere i nordlige himmelretninger.
