This animation created from satellite data shows the progression of the major winter storm over the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and southern states on March 2 and 3.
The storm brought snow to the U.S. mid-Atlantic, freezing rain to the Carolinas, and rain and some freezing rain to the Gulf Coast states. Visible and infrared imagery over those two days captured by NOAA’s GOES-East or GOES-13 satellite were compiled into a video made by NASA/NOAA’s GOES Project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
Dennis Chesters of the NASA/NOAA GOES Project at Goddard said:
This storm confirms the ancient adage that ‘March comes in like a lion.’ Hopefully it will follow the saying and the month will ‘go out like a lamb.’
Bottom line: A video made using NOAA’s GOES satellite data shows the progression of the major winter storm over the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and southern states on March 2 and 3, 2014
