Satellite Image - Recent Snowfall

The attached satellite image is from Monday, February 28, 2011 at 18:25 UTC (12:25 PM, CST) and centered on Nebraska.

The area of white in the center of the photo is the current snow cover on the ground in northern Kansas, southeast Nebraska, northern Missouri and southern Iowa. This area was snow free until the snowfall of February 24-25, 2011. Note the slightly gray area in Southeast Nebraska near the northern edge of the snow cover, this is the location of Lincoln. With the cleared roadways in the city of Lincoln, the Lincoln metro area shows up as less white compared to the surrounding rural areas. Note Lake MacConaughy in western Nebraska has some ice cover on the west and East end of the lake.

The White area in the lower right hand corner of the image is cloud cover over Southeast Missouri.

There are some clouds in south central South Dakota but otherwise the white in the top portion of this image is snow cover.
