Today’s MODIS image captured a snow-covered Northeast and New England. Fast-forward a few days and this will look quite a bit different given the upcoming warmth.
MODIS imagery is always good for a study and today’s was no different as a cool swirl of ice and snow was visible from space in the St. Lawrence River in Canada. The build-up of ice looked very similar to a low pressure center we’d spy on a typical satellite image – just on a much smaller (albeit still large) scale.
If you look carefully at the visible loop below you can see its counterclockwise spin.
