Hey John,

I have a couple questions here, i hope it doesn't take up to much of your time...

Since the radar hardly ever picks up the lake effect snow bands in the keweenaw and the western U.P, what exactly do you use to determine where the snow bands are? Is there any site or program(that I could get) that shows frequent high resolution 1 km GOES imagery of just the U.P or frequent MODIS imagery?(not just two images for the whole day like on the coastwatch site).

Also... in this MODIS image...what caused such a heavy prominent band of lake effect snow to develop even though the lake effect event looks to be wind parallel? (This was on Jan 1st) The band is right around mass city just northeast of lake gogebic and stretches all the way into the escanaba area.

This is what the scene was like as it moved through twin lakes southward...

Picture 2

And this is what it looked like as we later drove through it... at one point, it was a near whiteout...
