THESE ARE NOT CLOUDS! A GOES Satellite image of the Northeast showing the snow on the ground throughout most of the upper East Coast of The U.S. as of January 9, 2014. The clouds off shore are influenced by the very cold arctic air blowing over the warmer ocean water. SouthCoast will thaw out and may reach 54 degrees over the weekend. So what if there's some rain in the forecast, we'll take it!.
