First Big Snow in the East
December 9, 2003
A winter storm packing a one-two punch charged out of the Mid-West and into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast between December 4 and 7, 2003, dumping the first big snow of the season on the Eastern United States. As much as three feet of snow fell in parts of the northeast, with lesser amounts spread across the Mid-Atlantic. This MODIS image shows the snowy trail left by the storm across (top row, left to right) Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York; and (bottom row) West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware.
