in regions ofthe electromagnetic spectrum most often used forobservation. In the visible window (near 0.5 ~tm)both clouds and snow have high albedos; in the 11~tm infrared window both clouds and snow have highemittances. Thus, low clouds and snow, which havesimilar thermometric temperatures, present little contrast in visible or 11 ~m infrared satellite images. Inthe 3.7 ~im window, however, clouds and snow canhave different radiometric properties.Figure 1 shows a daytime 3.7 ~m image recordedby

snow showers were organized over a much larger area. The widespread existence of these snow showers can be seen from the bands in the unfiltered, 0.5°-elevation-angle, Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) radar reflectivity factor ( Fig. 2 ) and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-8 ( GOES-8 ) longwave infrared (channel 4) satellite imagery ( Fig. 3 ). For example, at their most widespread around 1000 UTC, the bands covered an area at least 600 km × 500 km. (For an
