Finding the Fall Freeze on the Key Peninsula

Image
Temperatures were near freezing at the Burley Lagoon on my commute yesterday morning.

Fall is in the freeze.

Yesterday’s cool temperatures certainly made the morning commute a slower drive. The wind blowing fog across Burley Lagoon was freezing. Here is the weather super geek Cliff Mass’ take on freezing fog:

“Freezing fog icing occurs when fog passes over a surface that is at or below freezing.  Fog in our area is made up of small water droplets.  Most of the time the fog is above freezing, but sometimes the fog droplets are supercooled, a condition in which the droplets are liquid even though their temperature is at or below freezing.  Amazing but true.”

The high today will be 52 degrees with more showers likely. Rain is in the forecast for most of the week. At least we will not see freezing temperatures until the start of next week.

Good morning Longbranch.
