Coastal storm engulfs New England
The stunning image from space above is a textbook case of a mature mid-latitude coastal storm. A classic comma head surrounds the low pressure center positioned just east of Maine. Underneath the comma head, heavy rain and mountain snows (e.g. Stowe, Vermont, Mt. Washington, NH and Lake Placid, NY) impact the interior Northeast and New England.
Adjacent to the low, a clearly defined frontal zone extends eastward into the Atlantic ocean and then wraps back around to the southwest all the way into the Bahamas.
Simply put, a massive but beautiful storm.
