One of the largest winter storms since the 1950s is affecting 30 U.S. states today with snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain. NASA satellites have gathering data on the storm that stretches from Texas and the Rockies to the New England states.

NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites have been providing visible, infrared and microwave looks at the storm system's clouds, precipitation, temperatures and extent.

Visible and infrared images and animations of the storm's clouds and movement are created every 15 minutes by the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. using data from GOES-11 and GOES-13, the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites. The GOES-13 and GOES-11 satellites that cover the eastern and western U.S., respectively, are operated by NOAA.

A visible image captured by the GOES-13 satellite this morning, Feb. 1 at 1401 UTC (9:01 a.m. EST) showed the low pressure area stretching from the Colorado Rockies and Texas east to New England and a massive area of clouds over the Midwest. The image showed what appeared to be "tails" over Texas and the Gulf coast. Those "tails" are areas where severe thunderstorms are possible today. To see an animation of the last two days of GOES-13 satellite images that show the progression of the storm, go to:

A weak storm system will slide from the Great Lakes into the northern mid-Atlantic today. This means that snowflakes will once again fly over areas hit hard by a snowstorm earlier this week.

Fortunately, significant accumulations are not expected from today's snowfall, with just a few snow showers in store for areas from Baltimore to Boston. The steadiest snow will fall along a zone from eastern Michigan into the central Appalachians.

Detroit, Pittsburgh and Syracuse are among the cities and towns that could be blanketed by 1 to 3 inches of snow through tonight. Meanwhile, freezing drizzle could glaze untreated surfaces in Ohio and West Virginia.

Snow and bitterly cold winds are forecast for much of the South East today and the wintry showers will continue over the weekend and into next week.

The good news, however, is there will be no return to the chaos caused by last month’s deep freeze. The falls are expected to be flurries rather than blizzards.

Dave Britton, the Met Office’s chief press officer, said: ‘When people wake up today, the temperature will be between 0C (32F) and 3C (37F) and it will not climb very much throughout the day.

‘It looks like it is going to stay largely cold and dry for the rest of the week and into next week, with some snow flurries in the east

A strong La Nina weather pattern will keep the cold and stormy weather in place across the Capital Region into at least February. Photo:

According to an updated winter forecast released today by, a strong La Nina in the equatorial eastern Pacific will continue to cause extreme weather for the remainder of the winter of 2011 across much of the country. The difficult part of the forecast is where the extreme weather will occur and whether or not it will occur with regularity.

Despite some reports that La Nina was weakening, the current La Nina is still going strong and many forecasters predict that it will persist into the Spring and potentially even the Summer and Fall of 2011. long range forecasters believe that due to the strong La Nina, colder than normal temperatures will continue to affect the eastern states, particularly the northeast and the Capital Region of upstate New York, into early February. Continued cold outbreaks are expected through the end of January, with the deepening snowpack primed to make the outbreaks even more extreme.

(Reuters) - A winter storm bearing down on the Northeast could dump another 6 to 12 inches of snow on New York City by Wednesday, 10 days after a powerful blizzard paralyzed the city and tarnished the image of Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the city's response.

The brunt of storm was expected to hit on Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday morning, likely disrupting travel, the U.S. National Weather Service said.

Boston could get hit with 12 to 15 inches (30 cm to 38) of snow, the weather service said.

The same storm that battered the southern United States on Monday was moving north up the coast and was due to mix with an upper level disturbance in the northern Great Plains that was heading eastward, producing heavy snow and winds with low visibility.

A council less than 50 miles from Britain's biggest salt mine is importing thousands of tonnes more than 6,000 miles from Peru to replenish stocks lost to the big freeze.

Rochdale Council took the drastic action after transport bosses became concerned that grit levels could fall critically low for a second year running.

Although much of the UK will enjoy a much welcome spell of milder weather this week, forecasters last night warned that winter is not yet over.

Residents in the north east of England yesterday woke up to a fresh sprinkling of snow and the Met Office refused to rule out a return of the freezing temperatures which crippled much of the UK last month.
