The humidity and temperature overnight worked together to deposit a feathery coating of hoar frost over the windward sides of branches and fence wires. Even exposed snow banks were covered in fingernail-sized flakes of frost. The frost disappeared soon after the sunlight strengthened, but it was a great sight while it lasted. I’m not a meteorologist, nor do I play one on TV, so I found this blog helpful in differentiating between hoar frost and rime ice.
Enjoy the view.
