Note:  Visible satellite images can be deceptive during winter.  If you do not see clouds moving in the

time-lapses below...then what you are actually seeing is snow cover on the ground and not clouds.

Infrared satellite images read the temperature of cloud tops. The colder the cloud, the higher it is in the atmosphere and shows up as yellow, red, and pink. Infrared satellites work at night...visible satellites do not. The major drawback to infrared satellite pictures is that low clouds and fog are almost impossible to spot since they blend in with the ground because they are about the same temperature.

 

Visible satellite images are dependent on sun shining on the Earth. As a result, visible satellite pictures only work during daylight hours, but the cloud detail is much better than the infrared image. Visible satellite images can be deceptive during winter. If you do not see clouds moving in the time-lapse...then what you are actually seeing is snow cover on the ground and not clouds.
