New York Prepares for Another Snow Storm

This GOES visible image, taken on January 6, 2010 shows the storm system moving across the Great Lakes region. It is expected to bring more snow to the Northeast U.S. only two weeks after the Boxer Day Blizzard of 2010. The first image uses the visible band of the GOES-13 satellite, whereas the second image uses a color enhancement on top of the infrared band of the satellite. Colors indicate cloud temperature, which is a good estimate of storm intensity. Orange color equals cold clouds, or an intense storm.
