Speaker Notes:

This slide shows to distinct maxima of frontogenesis, one associated with the low-level front southwest of Syracuse, and one associated with the upper-level front over southern Canada. The interaction between these two frontal zones is forcing a deep layer of ascent. Negative EPV, indicating areas of instability, covers much of the area below 600 mb.
