Assuming a standard lapse rate and the ground is below freezing, if a cloud is producing dry snow would it produce icing if flown into? My first thought is no as the moisture must be frozen to produce the snow.
Yep, have experienced it in flight, and more commonly in my car during the winter. If the conditions are just right, you can get a thick rapidly accumulating layer on the leading edges of your mirrors, headlamps and front spoiler/bumper. Strange stuff....
Yup there is. I got that on my way driving to florida in a large snow storm. It froze on the front of my car and it then broke off and hit my left mirror and took off a big piece of paint.
Yep, I understand that. I was just wondering if it would be safe to assume(i use that word lightly) that the moisture would be frozen or just supercooled waiting for something to freeze to.As for the OP. How does the precip form in a cloud? That might answer your questions for icing in a snow producing cloud.
It's not really dumb.This is going to sound really dumb but can you get ice flying through snow? Not in the clouds that are producing the snow, but just the snow itself.
