The Great Lakes

April 4, 2011
The bright white remnants of snow cut a clean swath across Wisconsin and Michigan during springtime snowmelt in early 2011. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard the Terra satellite captured this natural-color image March 28, 2011.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), snow depth in most of the snow-covered swath ranged from 4 inches to 20 inches on the day this image was captured, with much of it falling in a snowstorm on March 22 -24. By March 28, rising spring temperatures brought melting snow to the region, causing the NWS to issue flood warnings across many parts of Wisconsin and Michigan.
