Early Season Winter Storm Hammers the Eastern U.S.
Early Season Winter Storm Hammers the Eastern U.S.
November 16, 2018

NOAA's GOES East satellite captured this geocolor enhanced image of an early season winter storm moving through the Northeast on Friday, November 16, 2018. The storm hammered parts of the eastern United States on Thursday, bringing snow, sleet and freezing rain to much of the region. The wintry mix is expected to continue moving north on Friday, impacting areas from the central Appalachians to New England, according to the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center.

Forecasters say an additional 3-6 inches of snow is possible Friday across the northern Mid-Atlantic and interior Northeast where winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories remain in effect. As of Friday at 3 a.m. ET, parts of New York and Pennsylvania had preliminary snowfall totals of more than one foot, including a preliminary total of 13 inches in Gardnertown, New York.

The heaviest of the wintry mix is expected to push through New England Friday morning, before leaving the area by the afternoon. 

Created by our partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, the GOES East geocolor imagery enhancement displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night. In daytime imagery, land and shallow-water features appear as they do in true-color imagery, while at night (shown here), the window infrared channel 13 and the traditional fog product are used to identify both ice and liquid water clouds, and are made partially transparent against a static city lights background.
