ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION A new NASA video of NOAA's GOES satellite imagery shows three days of movement of the massive winter storm that stretches from the southern United States to the northeast. Visible and infrared imagery from NOAA's GOES-East or GOES-13 satellite from February 10 at 1:15 p.m. EST to February 12 to 1:45 p.m. EST were compiled into a video made by NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. In the video, viewers can see the development and movement of the clouds associated with the progression of the frontal system and related low pressure areas that make up the massive storm. The video also shows the snow covered ground over the Great Lakes region and Ohio Valley that stretches to northern New England. The clouds and fallen snow data from NOAA's GOES-East satellite were overlaid on a true-color image of land and ocean created by data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites. Hundreds of thousands of Georgia, North and South Carolina residents, remained without power as the storm made its way up the coast, closing much of Washington and threatening to drop up to a foot of snow across the region.
