Simulated Lake Effect Nov 18
Below is an animated gif of the NSSL-WRF forecast from Nov 18, 2014 at 0000 UTC of the 0-3km Updraft helicity (hourly max) during the Lake effect snow event.
The event in question for the tughill plateau resulted in 6 (south) -18 (north) inches of snow. You can see the 0-3km UH transition from focused north and into the Tughill and then later drift southward and reorient. I will update later with a reflectivity animation and discuss this more (and probably swap out color tables - too many meetings this week).
