This study utilized NCEI radar reflectivity mosaic data collected during the winters (Nov - Feb) of 2003/2004 through 2015/2016 to identify long-distance LES bands. The review of radar composites yielded 166 cases of long-distance LES bands that were divided into eight distinct categories. Intra-seasonal maximum of long-distance LES bands occurred in December and January, with lower frequencies in November and February. Their typical duration ranged from 3-7 hours, with several extreme cases lasting more than 24 hours. On average, these LES bands extended from the lake shore nearly 300 km, with some cases extending over 600 km. In addition to the climatological investigation across 13 winters, an illustrative case from 8 January 2009 was explored to gain insight into the conditions most favorable for the formation of long-distance LES bands from the eastern shore of Lake Erie. The LES band lasted approximately 6 hours and extended 713 km across New York State through the Mohawk River Valley to Manchester, NH.
