events by altering wind fields and creating local orographic lift ( Onton and Steenburgh 2001 ; Alcott and Steenburgh 2013 ). This can result in localized precipitation enhancement ( Veals and Steenburgh 2015 ), although the mechanisms associated with this are still under investigation ( Minder et al. 2015 ; Campbell et al. 2016 ). It follows that an accurate LES precipitation forecast needs to account for large-scale synoptic forcing, as well as local features and mesoscale variables. As a result

environmental baroclinity in lake-effect settings and exploring the influences of both weak and strong environmental baroclinity on the inland structure of lake-effect snowbands. Lake-effect snowstorms are known to form in diverse modes or morphologies, including 1) multiple wind-parallel rolls (cloud streets; e.g., Sikora et al. 2001 ), 2) mesoscale vortices, and 3) one or sometimes two band(s) parallel to the major axis of an elongated body of water (e.g., Holroyd 1971 ; Kelly 1986 ; Hjelmfelt 1990
