Abstract: Since 1915, snow has been measured annually at expected snow maximum in Norway in relation to power production and flood forecasting. Analysis of annual maximum snow water equivalent shows no temporal trend when looking at a regional dataset. However, looking at each single station with more than 15 years of data within a meteorological normal period, many single stations shows significant trend (=0,05) Most of the trends are positive for high altitude locations.
