White on Brown

Posted: 11 Nov 2011 07:11 AM

Having clear skies after a new snowfall always makes for pretty pictures from space like the one featured today. The new snow cover also makes for interesting local weather effects as can be seen by afternoon high temperatures on Thursday. The snow reflects much of the sun's energy back out into space which keeps air temperatures cooler than neighboring snow free areas. This snow patch should continue to decrease in size with more above freezing temperatures expected.

Good = 29
Bad = 6
