/interturbine scattering, indirect echoes, and spurious high reflectivity values ( Radar Operations Center 2014 ; National Weather Service Forecast Office Burlington, VT 2014a ). This affects radar returns near the wind farm and in down-radial areas over the Black River valley and western Adirondack Mountains (hereafter Adirondacks, see Fig. 1 for locations), as discussed where necessary later in the analysis. Unrelated to the wind farm, there are occasionally blocked radials or clutter removal in the vicinity of

water as ice covered. Exceptions include Lakes St. Claire and Simcoe, where ice was specified along the shores, the Finger Lakes, the Niagara River, the St. Lawrence River, and Lake Champlain. For lake-surface temperatures (LSTs) over the Great Lakes, we used 6-h analyses from the GLERL Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System. We set the open water of the smaller bodies of water noted above to 0°C with the exceptions of Lake Simcoe, whose NAM-derived LST seemed appropriate (above 0°C, but colder than

naming convention used in this paper and additional information on each flight leg are given in Tables 1 and 2 . Fig . 1. Locations of key observation platforms on 28 Jan 2014. The approximate trajectory of boundary layer air modified by Lake Erie is illustrated by light white shading. Flight stacks flown by UWKA are shown as red lines. Background shading denotes elevation variations. Light blue denotes the locations of lakes and major rivers, while darker blue patches over Lake Erie and the
