2nd Ice Storm In Only 2 Days!

Only 2 days ago I wrote a comment about the ice storm we saw and how ice storms are a relatively uncommon event on the summit. Mother nature must have heard me and felt spiteful, because another storm is about to begin this evening, with snow, sleet, freezing rain, and even plain rain all possible by tomorrow. This storm will have more precipitation than its predecessor, along with a bit warmer air. The summit will likely see plenty of glaze ice from freezing rain, making for a challenging night of de-icing. Precipitation should taper to showers tomorrow morning, with temperatures returning to near average for the summit in the lower 20s.
