First images from the brand new GOES-16 are here! Combined into so-called “Near natural” RGB composite, it can distinguish ice from water clouds during daily hours, thus we can take a look at the North America continent snow coverage (light turquoise colours without movement). The animation below shows how quickly is snow vanishing over Kansas and Missouri states on February 8th, when maximal temperatures raised up from -2 to roughly +15 dg.C in last two days.
