Northeastern U.S. Under A Blanket of Snow

The storm system that moved through the northeastern U.S. dropped large snowfall totals up to a foot in southern New England to a couple of inches in Virginia.

On January 22, 2014, the day after the event, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this image of the snowfall at 18:10 UTC/1:10 p.m. EST.

In the image, snowfall covers the ground in all six New England states, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and North Carolina.
