A new video of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite footage shows the growth of winter storm Nemo from space.
The video shows the storm not only forming but also hitting the U.S. Northeast, as reported by Space.com. The images in the video were captured by NOAA's GOES-13 weather satellite between Thursday and Saturday.
The storm that spawned the massive blizzard formed as two low-pressure systems collided and merged into one gigantic, powerful nor’easter that dumped huge amounts of snow across the Northeast and killed at least four people in the region.
Dubbed Nemo by the Weather Channel, it blanketed the region on Friday and Saturday, dumping as much as 38 inches of snow in various areas. Some forecasters indicated Massachusetts might be covered by the most snow before the storm arrived, but it appears Connecticut may have been hit the hardest, with more than 3 feet of the white stuff.
