Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Mildvær preger snødekket i lavlandet. Kraftig vind har gjort at snøfordelingen fra tidligere er ujevn i terrenget. Det er lite snø for årstiden.

Snødekket er komplekst oppbygd med flere vedvarende svake lag og skarelag. Utbredelse og responsen fra de svake lagene er veldig ulik fra område til område.

Det har vært stor skredaktivitet i forbindelse med mildværet før og gjennom helgen.
