The image shows the same scene in longwave infrared radiation, with brighter shades representing the colder temperatures of snow-producing clouds. Vast swaths of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Long Island (NY) were blanketed with 15 to 25 inches (40 to 60 centimeters) of snow as of midday on January 27, 2015, and snow was expected to continue into January 28. Sustained winds reached gale force, with hurricane-force gusts along the coastlines. Storm surges sent ice and water into the streets of Scituate and Nantucket, Massachusetts.Locations:Canada-North America-United States of AmericaDate:27 Jan, 2015Credit:© NASAMaximum size:2500px X 2500pxRestrictions:Image in the Public Domain, Okay for all Greenpeace uses with credit.
