Abstract

In this paper, the influence of Colorado cyclone airstreams on Midwestern snowfall is investigated using isentropic streamline maps for 5 cold season months. Results indicate that Colorado cyclones account for a minor percentage of Midwestern snowfall events and amounts. When snowfall is induced by Colorado cyclogenesis, diffluence and instability in the cold sector portions of the cyclone are the dominant lifting mechanisms
