Topic: The Great Lakes Mesovortex of December 30-31, 2017. Diagnosing the Evolution through Satellite Imagery and Local Modeling
A strong mesovortex developed across north central Lake Superior on December 30th 2017 and eventually tracked southward reaching far southern Lake Michigan by the evening of December 31st. This mesovortex produced a variety of high impact winter weather conditions across the western Great Lakes region over a 2 day period including strong wind gusts to 60 mph, waterspouts, and an intense snow band that disrupted holiday travel closing highways. The evolution of the mesovortex will be examined through use of satellite data and through local modeling sensitivity studies of sensible and latent heat fluxes from Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.
