Tagged: temperatures

After weeks of deep low temperatures, the past few days have yielded some much warmer temperatures, especially in the morning and afternoons. This causes dew in the morning which isn’t quite to the point where it is frost.  Here are a few close-ups I was lucky to find along the trees and leaves along the preserve.

DID YOU KNOW: Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening. As the exposed surface cools by radiating its heat, atmospheric moisture condenses at a rate greater than that at which it can evaporate, resulting in the formation of water droplets. When temperatures are low enough, dew takes the form of ice; this form is called frost.
