This morning, people on the US East Coast woke up to a “bomb cyclone,” a powerful winter storm that acts a bit like a snowy hurricane, and pictures of this explosive weather event from space show just how hurricane-like it actually is.

The GOES-16 weather satellite— operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — has been capturing the cyclone’s progress toward the coast.

Its imagery shows what looks like a pillowy white hurricane, one that rapidly formed east of the Carolinas and then cycled its way up toward New England.Here’s a 24-hour @NOAA#GOES16 infrared loop showing the evolution of the deepening east coast cyclone.
