Precipitation Measured from U.S. Winter Storm
Freezing rain and snow from a winter storm have caused power outages and deaths from the southeastern to the northeastern United States.
The TRMM-based, near-real time Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center is used to estimate precipitation for much of the globe. TMPA (liquid) precipitation totals (mm) are shown for the week from February 7-14, 2014 when a winter storm was moving through the area. Snow depths can be expected to be 10 to 12 times that for the same amount of rainfall. Liquid precipitation estimates of over 110mm (~4.3 inches) are shown by this analysis in some areas from the Gulf Of Mexico through Maine.
