— Did you know liquid droplets on a foggy winter morning can remain in liquid form in temperatures as low as 14 degrees?
When fog occurs at temperatures between 14-32 degrees, it is given the name freezing fog. When these droplets touch objects near the surface, they freeze on contact. Freezing fog is often accompanied by freezing drizzle. If enough water droplets combine and fall to the surface, it is possible for freezing drizzle to accumulate a thin glaze of ice on sidewalks, trees, and even roads.
