Snow cover (in Norwegian)

I solutsatt terreng er snødekket smelteomvandlet og veksler mellom hardt ved nattefrost og gradvis tining utover dagen ved sol. På de høyeste fjelltoppene finnes det fortsatt innslag av tørr snø i terreng vendt mot nord, men varmegrader vil ha påvirket til topps fredag.
Snøfordelingen er ujevn. Etter en snøfattig vinter er det nå lite snø igjen øst i regionen under ca. 1200-1400 moh. Mer snø vest i regionen, særlig i terreng mot øst og nord.

Observasjon fra Hol søndag sier at at grense for lagdelt snø ligger på ca 1500 moh.
