Visible Satellite Imagery of Friday Night's Snow

A couple of weather systems moved through the region Friday and Friday night, bringing some snow that at first did not accumulate, but later in the evening Friday, it did start to over portions of southeast Indiana as well as for several points east of the I-65 corridor in Kentucky.  Under clear skies today, the visible satellite imagery from this morning easily detects where the most snow accumulated Friday night.  Of note in the loop below is a streak that runs from central Oldham county in Kentucky through Shelbyville and Harrodsburg.  Snow depths in this area were reported Saturday morning at between a half inch and an inch. The liquid equivalent amount of precipitation that fell, that is, when melted down how much liquid made it to the ground, was at a peak near Centerfield in Oldham county, at 0.16", as indicated by the CoCoRaHS image below.  By the end of the day most of this snow had melted under the full sunshine and with temperatures rising into the mid 30s.
