Two Low Pressure Areas Fighting to Control the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Weather

NOAA's GOES-14 satellite captured a visible image of a low pressure area that will affect the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley and northeast over the next couple of days. The low pressure area, the rounded area of clouds near southern Louisiana, is now moving in a northerly direction from the Gulf coast, and will track northward to the Great Lakes, passing west of the Mid-Atlantic region and bringing clouds and showers. It's associated warm front will also move up the U.S. East coast bringing a surge of warmth before a cold front sweeps in from the west. The clouds draped across the Mid-Atlantic today, Oct. 1, are from an area of low pressure and trailing frontal boundary located over the Atlantic Ocean just off the North Carolina coast and stretching back to the Gulf low. The image was created at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. by the NASA GOES Project.
