Neat Snow Picture

Now that the skies have cleared the visible satellite imagery clearly shows where the significant snows fell during the Friday storm. The picture is a Sunday morning image. The only clouds are over the ocean, over northern Pennsylvania up into New York plus a few clouds over West Virginia. Ice clearly shows up on portions of Lake Erie. The rest of the white shaded areas in the picture indicate snow on the ground.

Notice that the white areas are brighter northwest and north of Baltimore. The brighter or more solid the white shading, the deeper the snowpack. Darker shading within the white snow areas indicate heavily forested areas. The Susquehanna River also shows up clearly in the Pennsylvania snowfield. Areas north of the Maryland/Pennsylvania line received 6-12 inches of snow and a few reports came in higher than that.
