Snow in Coastal North Carolina

February 17, 2010
With miles of sandy beaches and generally good weather, coastal North Carolina isn't a place you would usually expect to find snow. But the view from the MODIS on NASA's Aqua satellite on February 14, 2010, shows snow extending to the Outer Banks. The sandy islands, normally pale tan, are bright white in this image. Harkers Island received 8.8 inches of snow, reported CNN.

The snow fell in a winter storm that moved across the southern United States from Texas to the Atlantic Coast on February 12-13.
