(IOPs) to gain an unprecedented dataset on LeSs ( Table 1 ). Many of the common locations for the surface-based facilities during IOPs are shown in Fig. 1a ; aircraft flight patterns are illustrated in Figs. 1b–d . Observations collected by these facilities, as well as those taken operationally in the United States and Canada, have been integrated, quality controlled, and archived at the UCAR Earth Observing Laboratory ( www.eol.ucar.edu/field_projects/owles ).

representation of the large-scale atmospheric flow conditions (e.g., Alcott and Steenburgh 2010 ; Kennedy et al. 2011 ; Walters et al. 2014 ). Snow depth and snowpack SWE analyses were obtained from the National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center (NOHRSC) Snow Data Assimilation System (SNODAS; National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center 2004 ). SNODAS uses RUC/RAP snowfall analysis data, ground observations, data from airborne platforms, and spaceborne microwave remote sensing to

observations were taken (the Henderson Harbor site and NR). Two additional important parameters that were analyzed include vertically integrated liquid water and water vapor amounts, which aid in assessing the presence of supercooled water in the lake-effect clouds. These data were collected at Sandy Creek and were made available at 1-min intervals during both IOP5 and IOP7 using the MIPS Microwave Profiling Radiometer [MPR; see Karan and Knupp (2006 ) for details]. In situ probes [Gerber Scientific, Inc
