Hoarfrosty morning

It’s a winter wonderland outside the Weather Lab this morning. The trees are frocked in white, looking like an early Christmas present today.

It’s called “hoarfrost.” It happens when ice crystals are deposited directly on surfaces like trees and fences that are exposed to the humid sub-freezing air.

Conditions were perfect overnight with ice fog around the metro, and as you wake this morning take a look out and enjoy the beautiful Currier and Ives display around the metro.
