And frozen fog is a term used to describe fog when the air temperature reaches freezing point or below it, and when a surface is exposed to frozen fog, frost forms on it, and this is one of the dangers of freezing fog, as it affects the roads and causes slips for cars and pedestrians, and the frozen fog is attached to the surface that connects With it, such as trees, telephone poles, cars and rails. When the air temperature is very cold ( less than zero degrees Celsius ), the water droplets in the fog freeze or turn into ice crystals, and then the fog becomes an ice fog.
