This animation of GOES-12 visible channel images shows the development and movement of an intense lake-effect snow band over Lake Ontario on 06 February 2007. Convergence between northwesterly boundary layer winds north of the lake and southwesterly boundary layer winds south of the lake helped to focus the feature into a single intense lake-effect snow band during this particular day.
