January 1, 2015 (Southern California)--Alex Tardy with the National Weathersent in this image taken by the Aqua Modis satellite at 2 p.m. on New Year's Eve. It shows an extensive pack of snow across Southern California, including the lower Inland Empire and southern Santa Ana mountains. You can see the Salton Sea to the east.
It looks like some much-needed drought relief to start the New Year!
