U.S. Snowstorm Seen From Space:Weather Captured By NASA

The storm, which is covering a third of the U.S., is captured in the following images by NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite as well as the GOES-13 satellite.

While most of the snow showers associated with this storm will diminish, the back side of the system will create strong flow from the northwest over the Great Lakes. This will allow for lake effect snow showers to develop along the downwind shores of the Great Lakes. Lake effect snow showers will dump 3 to 5 inches of heavy wet snow across northern Ohio, northwestern Michigan and western New York state.

Though the storm began to loosen its grip on the Midwest Wednesday, the National Weather Service released a blunt warning reminding Chicago residents to stay off the roads and be careful shoveling snow. Traffic accidents and heart attacks due to overexertion are common causes of death in snowy weather.
