An interesting pattern of “snow streaks” across parts of Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky was seen on a MODIS true color Red/Green/Blue (RGB) image from the SSEC MODIS Today site on 03 January 2012 — this pattern was caused by narrow cells of convective snowfall which propagated southeastward across the region on the previous day. The amount of snow on the ground was only a Trace to 1 inch, which allowed the snow streaks to quickly melt during the day.
