NOAA Photo Library Image - spac0279

An infrared image transmitted from NOAA 2 satellite showing the East Coast of North America from the Gaspe Peninsula to northern Florida. A frontal system is offshore with "cloud streets" extending back to the west. This cold front brought low temperatures to the eastern United States. The image was sensed by the very high resolution radiometer with 1/2 mi. resolution.
