    Default Frost?

    Does everyone see the frost up there today? Winter is almost on the Summit!

    It's called rime ice. It may be made out of the same stuff, but it forms under entirely different conditions than frost.

    Anybody save any good images of the rime today?

    The big news is all the frost expected in the valleys tonight. Even areas away from the coast in Connecticut could see frost.
