Freezing rain

icesleetfrozen rain
Glaze or glaze ice, also called glazed frost, is a smooth, transparent and homogeneous ice coating occurring when freezing rain or drizzle hits a surface.
The resulting ice, called glaze ice, can accumulate to a thickness of several centimeters and cover all exposed surfaces.

Glaze or glaze ice, also called glazed frost, is a smooth, transparent and homogeneous ice coating occurring when freezing rain or drizzle hits a surface.
Freezing rain is a type of winter storm called an ice storm where rain falls and then freezes producing a glaze of ice.

Ice storm

sleetice stormsice
In February 1994, a severe ice storm caused over $1 billion in damage in the Southern United States, primarily in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama.
The freezing rain from an ice storm covers everything with heavy, smooth glaze ice.

Freezing drizzle

Glaze or glaze ice, also called glazed frost, is a smooth, transparent and homogeneous ice coating occurring when freezing rain or drizzle hits a surface.
When freezing drizzle accumulates on land, it creates an icy layer of glaze.

Clear ice

It is similar in appearance to clear ice, which forms from supercooled water droplets.
A similar phenomenon occurs when freezing rain or drizzle hit a surface and is called glaze.

Black ice

patches of ice
When the local population prepared to set out for work and school, they saw from their windows what appeared to be clear roads and pavements but which were in fact treacherous sheets of black ice.
Black ice, sometimes called clear ice, is a thin coating of glaze ice on a surface, especially on roads.

Another example of the effect of glaze occurred during a freezing rain event during the unusually severe winter of 2009–2010 in the United Kingdom.
Further north over north Wales and northwest England, sleet showers on frozen ground overnight caused glazed frost which had largely gone by morning.

Rime ice

Glaze ice is similar in appearance to clear ice but it is the result of a completely different process, occurring during freezing rain or drizzle.

Homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures

De-icing

Most helicopters and small airplanes lack the necessary deicing equipment to fly in freezing rain of any intensity, and heavy icing can overwhelm even the most sophisticated deicing systems on large airplanes.

Airfoil

Icing can dramatically increase an aircraft's weight, and by changing the shape of its airfoils also reduce lift and increase drag.

Inversion (meteorology)

temperature inversioninversioninversion layer
However, freezing rain is accompanied by a temperature inversion aloft, meaning that aircraft actually need to climb to move into warmer air—a potentially difficult and dangerous task with even a small amount of ice accumulation.

However, during the early hours of 12 January a wet front moved across the country causing freezing rain and heavy glaze, particularly in the South and West Yorkshire areas of Northern England (crucially, this rainfall had stopped before first light).
