1. Introduction Extratropical cyclones (ECs) in the boreal winter most commonly occur in the northern Pacific storm-track region ( Chang and Fu 2002 ; Hoskins and Hodges 2005 ; Shaw et al. 2016 ). With strong vertical and horizontal exchanges of heat, water vapor, and momentum, the ECs in this region play an important part in the global atmospheric circulation and energy budget ( Bengtsson et al. 2006 ; Held et al. 1989 ; O’Gorman 2010 ). Furthermore, the storm track of ECs has a close and

dissipation in the mixed layer larger than suggested by Rayner (1980) . This is clearly an area for further research. It is important to note that this model currently neglects a number of processes frequently considered important in the mixed-layer dynamics of lakes, including the existence of inflows and outflows, Langmuir circulations, etc. Such processes could be included at the expense of increasing complexity provided data exist. On the other hand, the use of Rayner’s closure hypothesis, (24) and
