Record Snow in Texas
January 6, 2005
Record snowfall covered southern and eastern Texas on December 25, 2004, in this true-color Terra MODIS image. Anywhere from two to six inches of snow accumulated on an otherwise tropical area. This was the first snow accumulation in Brownsville Texas (the southernmost American city along the US-Mexico border) in 109 years. Just days after the snow fell, temperatures rose back into the 80s (Fahrenheit) and melted the suprise away.
