Were experincing freezing fog.... what is that you ask.....
What is freezing fog?
Learned a new weather term today. It's 'freezing fog.'
First noticed it when I was checking the weather and saw the words 'snow freezing fog' applied to the description of what's going on up there right now.
Well, I'd never heard of that before. (And after having lived in this region all of my life, I thought I'd heard all the weather terms there were.) After a vision of a B-horror movie kind of vicious, snow-freezing fog, I decided to google it.
A definition from the National Weather Service:
Freezing fog occurs when the water droplets that the fog is composed of are "supercooled". Supercooled water droplets remain in the liquid state until they come into contact with a surface upon which they can freeze. As a result, any object the freezing fog comes into contact with will become coated with ice. The same thing happens with freezing rain or drizzle.
And it looks a little something like this...
