  1. Examine the structure of a mature midlatitude cyclone from the conveyor belt standpoint.
  2. Understand how areas where equivalent potential vorticity < 0 are conducive to conditional symmetric instability and snowbands.
  3. Demonstrate the positive interaction between frontogenesis and zones favorable for CSI.
  4. Compare these features in two CONUS case studies.
