Large Frost Crystal along Green Lake Road, February 2014
Last winter was pretty mild until February, at which point temperatures dropped a bit and we had some pretty chilly weather. As it’s still only the middle of January, it’s hard to be certain this winter will remain warm, but looking at the prediction maps on this post from Cliff Mass, it looks like chances are we’re in for a relatively warm remainder of the winter. I would expect there to be at least a few cold days/nights in the mix if/when skies clear a bit between storm systems, but it will be interesting to see.
With so little frost and ice to be found this year, I thought I would share some pictures of large frost crystals I got last February on an outing to Medvejie Lake, as a reminder of the season.
