wind profiles from soundings. Lake Ontario was mostly ice free during the 7–9 January event, except for some of the bays and inlets in its northeastern corner. Ice cover and lake surface temperatures (LSTs) were manually specified for the WRF simulation using gridded surface- and satellite-based analyses valid just prior to the event (6 January) from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System (GLCFS). Following Gerbush et al. (2008) , areas

clouds between the western and southern shores of Lake Ontario and the initiation of lake-effect clouds. The satellite image in Fig. 3 shows that the low-level clouds originating from over Lake Erie were not evident over and north of the Lake Ontario shoreline. However, exactly where the UPBL clouds from Lake Erie dissipated is difficult to discern due to the snow-covered ground below them. Forward-oriented photographic images taken from the UWKA along flight stack B provide some insight into the
