Snow over East Coast of USA - March 4th, 2009

Skies over the East Coast of the United States of America have cleared since the huge snow storm that hit the region a few days ago.

Coastal states from Maine (northeast) to Georgia (southeast) received up to 30 centimeters (1 foot) of snow, reported the New York Times, and the storm even hit inland states as far west as Arkansas.

Here, the snowfall is visible as a wide white strip stretching from Maine (top) to Virginia (center), then curving southwestward through Georgia (bottom left) towards Arkansas.

Parts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia nearest to the Atlantic are not snow-covered.

Lake Ontario (top left) appears dark blue and free of ice, while Lake Erie, just to its South, has a coat of ice.

To their East, New York City and Long Island stand out in white against the dark blue of the Atlantic Ocean. Offshore, clouds over the ocean form streaked patterns.
