Lake Effect Snow article from Northern MI NWS
« on: February 19, 2015, 01:48:07 PM »
I was wondering about the effect of ice coverage on lake-effect snow and came across this interesting article from NWS here in Northern Michigan.

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/images/apx/presentations/Snow_Climate.pdf

It pretty much confirmed my suspicions that ice coverage does minimize lake-effect snow.

Also found an interesting feature on NWS showing ice coverage: http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/glcfs.php?hr=00&ext=ice&type=N&lake=l, the animated one is pretty cool.  8-)
