Snow Cover Stretching From Northeastern
Photograph - Photograph
January 13, 2011 - Snow cover stretching from northeastern Texas to the Carolinas. The storm continued north along the East Coast and produced heavy snowfall in the northeast United States. Brighter areas of snow cover are found in the Delta region of eastern Arkansas and northwestern Mississippi, which lacks the tree cover that is prevalent over most of the Southeast. In many other areas, trees protrude above the snow and appear darker to the satellite. The Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers are visible crossing the snow covered Delta. Another area of bright snow is evident in the Tennessee River Valley of north central Alabama, where some of the heaviest snowfall occurred. Two darker areas in northern Alabama are the Bankhead National Forest (south of the Tennessee River) and the heavily forested Cumberland Plateau (north of the river, extending into Tennessee). Low cloud cover appears over the snow in Tennessee, and high cirrus clouds are evident from Louisiana to southern Georgia. Cloud streets over the Gulf of Mexico were produced by low-level instability as the cold air in the wake of the storm passed over the warm waters of the gulf.
