NASA goes for the snow-forecasting gold

To that end, the NASA teams in Pyeongchang are using a forecast model developed by NASA's Short-term Prediction Research and Transition Center (SPoRT). SPoRT, which seeks to improve short-term weather forecasts in a region, designed the model to do a couple of different things. First, the model can determine what a cloud is made of and then provides specific details on whether it's producing rain or snow. Second, the model uses data from three different satellites — NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites and the NASA/NOAA/Department of Defense Suomi-National Polar Orbiting Partnership satellite — to determine sea surface temperatures. This information tells researchers how much energy is available and how much moisture could end up evaporated and becoming snow.
