Brief ice storm

A brief, but intense, ice storm moved through the area overnight. Freezing rain and sleet began around 2230 yesterday evening, and continued with frequent downpours for a few hours. However, my estimation of “downpour” was by the sound of the precipitation hitting the roof --- the rain guage (after everything had melted) recorded only 0.07" precipitation.

The temperature rose steadily through and after the event, beginning at 26°F when the precipitation started and breaking the freezing mark around 0400. By then, however, the precipitation had moved out of the area (when I awoke at about 0300, the precipitation had ended).

One interesting note, as you can see in the accompanying chart, my anemometer apparently froze up just before 0100 and did not thaw out until a little after 0600.
