    Texas, Oklahoma Snow Burst Captured on Radar, Satellite

    According to our news story "Photos: Snowburst Whitens Texas and Oklahoma":

    "The cold air went through Dallas Sunday night to produce a snowburst. A snowburst is a short, strong snow shower that is dangerous because visibility is very low and can cause roads to ice up quickly."

    After the sun came up, the line had quickly moved to the east, as you can see in the radar animation above, and the visible satellite showed where the majority of the snow fell:

    Later in the day, when the MODIS satellite passed overhead, a high-resolution image showed some of the snow still on the ground of farmland on the Texas/Oklahoma border:

    The NWS in Lubbock has some more information and additional photos.
