WTH? I just got a text weather alert for freezing fog...

That sounds pretty painful to me. Have you heard of that?

  • Here we go - Thanks Wikipedia!

    Freezing fog occurs when liquid fog droplets freeze to surfaces, forming white soft or hard rime.[22] This is very common on mountain tops which are exposed to low clouds. It is equivalent to freezing rain, and essentially the same as the ice that forms inside a freezer which is not of the "frostless" or "frost-free" type. The term "freezing fog" may also refer to fog where water vapor is super-cooled, filling the air with small ice crystals similar to very light snow. It seems to make the fog "tangible", as if one could "grab a handful".

  • Yes, I live in Oregon & we've had freezing fog, basically the moisture from the fog freezes on contact. Similar to the way freezing rain is.

  • No, but I just watched a youtube video where a gil boiled water then threw it up into the air and it was so cold outside it instantly evaporated into fog LOL. Maybe that's similar lol?

  • fog is a cloud, much like how steam is. When cold temp meets hot temp, we get a cloud. Just so happens the cold and hot temp combined this time will be below or at 0degrees Celsius.
