Diagnostic Total Cloud Cover

The following panels show the 2100 UTC (1600 LST) total cloud cover (tenths) for simulations with and without Lake St. Clair. The 2100 UTC image was used since the clouds were more developed then than for 2000 UTC. When Lake St. Clair is removed, a line of convective clouds is allowed to develop south of Lake Huron.
