Microphysics in mesoscale snowbands. A modest proposal. Mesoscale snowbands. Snow is concentrated in snowbands Snowband : linear radar reflectivity structure 20–100 km in width, >250 km in length, with an intensity >30 dB Z , which is maintained for at least 2 h (Novak et al., 2004)
A modest proposal
Sanders and Bosart (1985) ~ 1 m s-1 max in N.Eng.
Houze (1981) ~ 0.8 m s-1 max in Pacific Northwest
Cronce et al. (2007) 35% > 1 m s-1, 9% > 2 m s-1 in central & southern U.S.
