Frosty mornings bedazzle Northwest Colorado
CRAIG — Much of the region glittered Sunday and Monday as hoarfrost bedazzled vegetation.
Thick enough to look like snow, hoarfrost is a weather phenomenon similar to the formation of dew when humid air comes into contact with cooler surfaces.
The difference is that the temperature of the object on which the hoar frost forms is well below zero, according to weatheronline.co.uk.
The resulting frost with the funny name made Northwest Colorado look like a winter wonderland.
