A massive winter storm system pummeled the eastern United States in late January 2016, with two low-pressure systems merging into a potent nor’easter that dropped heavy snow from Virginia to New England. By late afternoon on Jan. 23, snowfall totals were approaching records in several states, and hurricane-force winds were battering the coastlines and leading to serious flooding. The storm was expected to continue through the morning of Jan. 24.

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite acquired this image of the storm system at 2:15 a.m. EST on Jan. 23. It was composed through the use of the VIIRS “day-night band,” which detects faint light signals such as city lights, moonlight, airglow, and auroras. In the image, the clouds are lit from above by the nearly full Moon and from below by the lights of the heavily populated East Coast. The city lights are blurred in places by cloud cover.

Thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds were possible in Arkansas then Tennessee and Kentucky before the threat moved on towards Alabama and Mississippi.

"These storms will be moving quickly and effect most locations for up to 30 minutes so voters will be inconvenienced but if they wait out the storms weather will clear out quickly," NBC News forecaster Bill Karins said.

The cold side of the front was expected to bring snow in Wisconsin and Michigan, while interior New York and northern New England were set for snow Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, Karins added.

In the Chicago area, a Winter Storm Warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Lake, McHenry and Boone counties until 9 a.m. Tuesday, while a Winter Weather Advisory was in effect for Cook, DuPage, Kane and DeKalb counties, according to NBC Chicago.

Winter storm warnings were also in effect across Michigan.

The came as The Weather Channel warned that another front could bring snow and wintry weather to many central and eastern states later this week.
