The authors thank numerous people at the NWS Forecast Office in Romeoville, Illinois, for their efforts in completing the lake-breeze daily logs for the summers of 1996–97. We also extend our appreciation to the Midwest Regional Climate Center for making the climatological data used in this study available. We value the efforts of Dr. John Walsh of the University of Illinois for his thorough review of a draft of this manuscript. In addition, we are appreciative for the thorough reviews of two anonymous reviewers whose comments resulted in an improved manuscript. This work was supported by National Science Foundation Grants ATM-9510098 and ATM-9816306. Additional support was provided by subaward S96-75668 under a cooperative agreement between NOAA and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
