statistical relationship between environmental conditions and inland extent, finding differential cold air advection as an important predictor. This finding motivated a closer look at the impact of baroclinity, and its impact in modifying the advective environment, on dominant bands. In the remainder of the paper, we explore the interaction of dominant bands with environmental baroclinity. The data and methods used in this study are explained in section 2 . The research topic is explored in section 3

1. Introduction a. Lake-effect storms and OWLeS During the winter of 2013/14, scientists from 11 institutions gathered in upstate New York to conduct a first-of-its-kind field campaign on Lake Ontario–generated lake-effect snowstorms: the Ontario Winter Lake-Effect Systems (OWLeS; Kristovich et al. 2017 ) project. The University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) aircraft, heavily instrumented for in situ and remote sensing of the atmosphere; three Doppler-on-Wheels (DOW) radars; five rawinsonde

However, LLAP-band snowfall has been observed to extend hundreds of kilometers inland on occasion ( Niziol et al. 1995 ; Villani et al
