Glazed Frost

Nature volume 88, page 414 (25 January 1912) | Download Citation



A REMARKABLY good instance of glazed frost occurred in the London suburbs on Thursday morning, January 18, and evidently the same phenomenon was observed over a wide area in the south of England. A touch of real winter had spread rapidly over the country, and a strong and cold easterly wind was blowing, associated with the European anticyclone where the barometer was 31 inches, and with an area of low barometer readings over the Atlantic in fair proximity to our coasts. These conditions occasioned a heavy fall of snow over the northern and Midland portions of England, but there was copious rain in the south of England, with the air temperature at or slightly below the freezing point.
