A satellite image of the winter storm that will bring snow and strong winds to the Northeast.

NASA chose this satellite image of Friday’s blizzard as its photo of the day.

According to NASA, the winter storm is the result of  two low pressure systems merging over the East Coast:

“The satellite image, captured at 9:01 a.m. EST, shows clouds associated with the western frontal system stretching from Canada through the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, into the Gulf of Mexico. The comma-shaped low pressure system located over the Atlantic, east of Virginia, is forecast to merge with the front and create a powerful nor’easter. The National Weather Service expects the merged storm to move northeast and drop between two to three feet of snow in parts of New England.”
