The GOES-East satellite (a joint project of NASA and NOAA) captured this photo of the winter storm that hammered the South yesterday.

The National Weather Service has canceled the Winter Storm Warning for the New Orleans region as the storm moves offshore, but a Hard Freeze Warning is in effect. Temperatures are forecasted to warm into the mid- to upper-30s today, with hints of sunshine, but will quickly plummet after nightfall.
