Soft rime is a type of milky white ice that forms when water droplets in light freezing fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. This formation usually occurs with light winds or in calm conditions. The rime forms to the windward (side facing the wind) side of solid objects. Soft rime is similar in appearance to hoar frost, but is formed differently. Soft rime is formed when vapor first condenses to liquid droplets and then attaches to the surface. Hoar frost is formed when water vapor is...
Hard rime is a type of white ice that forms when water droplets found in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. Hard rime is most often found on trees atop mountains and high ridges in winter, when low clouds cause freezing fog. This fog freezes along the windward (sides facing the wind) side of trees, buildings, and any other solid objects. The air temperature needed for hard rime to form is less than 29 degrees Fahrenheit and typically higher than 17 degrees Fahrenheit. High wind is...
Clear Ice refers to a solid precipitation that forms when air temperature is between 32 degrees and 27 degrees Fahrenheit and there is a presence of super-cooled, large drops of water (from freezing fog). A rapid build up and slow dispersing of latent heat of fusion favors conditions for the formation of the transparent ice. A similar phenomenon occurs when freezing rain or drizzle hit's a surface and freezes causing what is known as glaze. When clear ice forms on the ground, it is...
