The winter storm that is snarling Thanksgiving travel in the central and eastern United States left a path of snow across the Southwest earlier in the week. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired this image on November 26, 2013, after the clouds cleared. The National Weather Service reported snowfall totals ranging from 41 inches in Utah to 2 inches in parts of Oklahoma and Kansas. All of the states shown received significant snowfall.
