Abstract

This paper investigates the fundamental characteristics of surface cyclones producing heavy snowfall at 3 Midwestern stations, Minneapolis, Madison, and Indianapolis, for the period from 1966 to 1996. Heavy-snow cyclone track location (latitude and longitude) and intensity (central presure) means and standard deviations are calculated for each station and related to snowfall magnitude. Statistical analysis of surface cyclone parameters reveals significant interstation differences in storm trajectory and intensity measures for all cyclones and cyclogenesis group subsets
