NOAA and NASA satellites are tracking the major snowstorm from space. See their latest views below.
#GOESEast captured the full path of the #BombCyclone exhibiting a rare and extremely rapid rate of intensification on the East Coast with some of the coldest wind chills of the season and near zero visibility in the snow bands @NWS. #Blizzard2018 More: https://t.co/mbgRYot60A pic.twitter.com/GKlFTaLJBI— NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) January 4, 2018
#SuomiNPP caught these eye-popping visible and infrared images of the #Noreaster #BombCyclone intensifying off the North Carolina coast early this morning. More awesome satellite imagery here: https://t.co/mbgRYot60A pic.twitter.com/gKuk0hpgrO— NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) January 4, 2018
The Air Mass RGB product from @NOAA's #GOES16 satellite helps to diagnose the environment during deep cyclogenesis by enhancing temperature and moisture characteristics of air masses, as is the case this morning with the deepening storm off the US east coast. #blizzard pic.twitter.com/GIut3RVl8w— NASA SPoRT (@NASA_SPoRT) January 4, 2018
Wondering about the shape of the #blizzard? The powerful midlatitude #BombCyclone has several meso-vortices spinning within its center, #GOESEast ABI captured these images of the storm every minute today. #snowday See more #cool GOES imagery here: https://t.co/mbgRYot60A pic.twitter.com/Zzab51uurp— NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) January 4, 2018

The @NOAA #GOES16 Geostationary Lightning Mapper continues to detect #lightning flashes in heavy snow on Long Island and Southeast CT. Here are two lightning flashes at 1354 UTC. #blizzard pic.twitter.com/6C3YTG3FXK— NASA SPoRT (@NASA_SPoRT) January 4, 2018
NOAA's #GOESEast captures #FloridaSnow in Tallahassee today and the first effects of the #BombCyclone forecast to impact the East Coast with severe cold and snow. #WinterIsHere.
