Abstract

The interactions of the winter lake-effected boundary layer with synoptic systems over Lake Michigan were analyzed. Clouds associated with a retreating surface low-pressure system located north of Maine on 5 December 1997 produced widespread light snow in the Great Lakes region. Bands of precipitation associated with the synoptic system periodically moved across Lake Michigan in a Southerly direction. Interaction of the lake-effect boundary layer with the precipitating synoptic clouds aloft produced a deeper and more vigorous boundary layer, with greater concentrations of snow, which led to increased snow accumulations.
