This week’s satellite image is from the little bit of snow we had in New Mexico a few days ago. What look like clouds in the northwestern corner of the state is actually snow cover. The visual satellite imagery can only see black and white, so it cannot discern snow from clouds. Using other satellite imagery, and knowing the weather conditions is required to characterize this as snow.
