Halloween Weekend Snow Paints a Ghostly Picture in the U.S. Northeast

 

Written by Rob Gutro
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – A late October snowstorm from a Nor’easter blanketed the eastern U.S. from West Virginia to Maine and broke records the weekend before Halloween Monday. NASA’s Aqua satellite flew over the region on October 30th after the snow was ending in New England and captured the ghostly blanket of white.

A high pressure area located over southeastern Canada was responsible for bringing in cold air and that combined with a low near the North Carolina coast this weekend. The result was an unusual snowstorm from West Virginia to Maine.
