The NWS office in Fort Worth, Texas enjoyed a beautiful #sunrise this morning ahead of this weekend’s expected rain there.

These shots about four and a half hours apart today show the welcome sight for many: snow receding in the Great Lakes area.

Here, you can see a forecaster from the NWS Office in Green Bay, WI standing near massive snow drifts towards the end of their mid-April snowstorm. Green Bay received 24.2 inches of snow from April 13-16, most of which fell on the 14-15. This ranks as the second highest snow storm in Green Bay’s history.

A view this morning from our GOES East satellite of the large storm system that’s pounded the US all weekend and continues to bring heavy rain and snow to parts of the Northeast.

Today’s the day! Show us where your safe place from any variety of extreme weather is, by taking a selfie there, sharing it and adding #SafePlaceSelfie!
We’ll be sharing them through the day. http://weather.gov/wrn/safeplaceselfie

The first in the GOES-R series of weather satellites became GOES East in December. The second will launch on Thursday and become GOES West in late 2018. This short video shows what the “East” and “West” mean. Learn more about what the satellites can do: http://www.goes-r.gov

Working with NOAA’s Aircraft Operations Center, the NWS Office of Water Prediction Airborne Snow Survey Program has been measuring the liquid water content (Snow Water Equivalent, or SWE) of snow on the ground throughout the northern part of the country. These airborne SWE measurements are used by NWS offices when issuing river and flood forecasts, water supply forecasts, and spring flood outlooks. Here, one of NOAA’s four Twin Otter aircraft works in the Great Lakes Region. More info on the project can be found here:

This great shot was captured by the staff at the NWS office in Memphis, TN. The bright spots on either side of the sun are called sundogs. Sundogs are colored spots of light that develop due to the refraction of light through ice crystals. They are located approximately 22 degrees either left, right, or both, from the sun, depending on where the ice crystals are present. The colors usually go from red closest to the sun, out to blue on the outside of the sundog. Sundogs are also known as mock suns or parhelia, which means “with the sun”. #science #clouds #beautiful #photooftheday

A look at the powerful winter storm system battering the east coast today from the new GOES-East satellite. This is the “GeoColor” product. See more amazing imagery at weather.gov/satellite
