1. Introduction Freezing precipitation, including freezing drizzle (FZDZ), freezing rain (FZRA), and ice pellets (IPE; Carrière et al. 2000 ; Bernstein 2000 ), is a major weather hazard that can cause severe socioeconomic losses. Surface ice accumulation can halt air and ground transportation, weigh down and snap power lines, severely damage trees, and it is also a potential serious risk to the safety and health of local residents in the influenced areas. Four stages of heavy snowfall and

inner core occurred in the right-front quadrant relative to the direction of motion. When the direction of the vertical shear vector was opposite to the direction of motion, the highest flash counts occurred mostly in the direction of shear and therefore it was argued that the shear effect tends to dominate the motion effect in determining the convective asymmetries. The land–sea contrast may also impact the storm symmetric structure, although this has not been as extensively studied as the effects
