Came across this one while looking around on the NASA app last night & found it quite interesting:
nasa.gov - NASA Snow-Chasers
When giant white swirls of clouds cover the weather map with a winter storm warning, one question looms in the minds of people in its path: How much snow will it bring? With snow threatening access to roads, work, and school, snowfall is one of the most consequential winter weather phenomenon on the U.S. East Coast. It’s also one of the most difficult to predict.

nasa.gov - IMPACTS EPSO
Winter snowstorms are frequent on the eastern seaboard and cause major disruptions to transportation, commerce, and public safety. Snowfall within these storms is frequently organized in banded structures that are poorly understood by scientists and poorly predicted by current numerical models.
