Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Høyt til fjells, særlig i indre deler av regionen ligger det stedvis fokksnø i leområder og forsenkinger etter snøværet i helgen og mandag. Der hvor vinden har tatt tak, er det avblåst til isete mildværsskare fra sist fredag. I lavere fjellområder er snødekket preget av mildværet og fokksnøen fra helgen er fuktet opp. Det gamle snødekket er smelteomvandlet.

Mandag ble det automatisk detektert to middels store skred ved Kvitrona ved Bjærangsfjorden.
