(WTNH) — The third nor’easter in 10 days hit the east coast on Tuesday and one satellite in space had the best view of it.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) tweeted imagery that their satellite GOES East (GOES-16) captured of the storm as it pummeled New England with heavy wet snow and strong winds Tuesday.

The agency says the east coast of the United States is a breeding ground for nor’easters.
