Today’s MODIS Satellite Pics

A couple of nice photos from NASA’s MODIS Rapid Response System

The first taken at 10:25am this morning (from “Terra”) shows melting snow on the Canterbury Plains that fell on Saturday,

From the looks of that picture, the biggest falls on the Plains might have been in the Methven to Mt Somers area.

The second photo taken at 2:35pm this afternoon (from “Aqua”) shows some nice cloud formations at different levels in the strong southwest airstream covering the South Island – some low level cumulus (probably in rotors), mid-level lenticulars and some high level cirrus,
