The diagnosis of snowfall characteristics, including the spatial pattern of snow cover, presents a major challenge for weather forecasters (Barry, 2008; Doesken & Judson, 1997). This is particularly the case in mountain regions, where orographic effects and meteorological processes in the lower troposphere result in much fine-scale spatial variability in the resulting snow cover (Keighton et al., 2009; Minder, Durran, & Roe, 2011; Pavelsky, Sobolowski, Kapnick, & Barnes, 2012). The ability to… CONTINUE READING
