Tracking a Blizzard from Coast to Coast

The storm system that dumped snow and stress on many states along the U.S. east coast started out as the same system that drenched California residents earlier in the week. This animation of GOES-East and -West infrared data imagery tracks the storm from its roots in the Pacific on December 21 until it begins to dissipate over the Atlantic on December 27, 2010. The NOAA GOES satellites provide visible and infrared images of the Northern Hemisphere approximately every 15 minutes, and are one of the primary tools used by meteorologists.
