Ice Storm Warning

An Ice Storm Warning is issued by the National Weather Service of the United States when freezing rain produces a significant and possibly damaging accumulation of ice. The criteria for this warning vary from state to state, but typically an ice storm warning will be issued any time more than 1⁄4 inch (6.4 mm) of ice is expected to accumulate in an area; in some areas, the criterion is 1⁄2 inch (13 mm). A freezing rain advisory or freezing drizzle advisory will be issued when a small amount of icing is possible.

In Canada, a Freezing Rain Warning has the same meaning.

    “A tedious brief scene of young Pyramus
    And his love Thisbe, very tragical mirth”—

    As the bird trims her to the gale,
    I trim myself to the storm of time,
    I man the rudder, reef the sail,
    Obey the voice at eve obeyed in prime:
    “Lowly faithful, banish fear,
    Right onward drive unharmed;
    The port, well worth the cruise, is near,
    And every wave is charmed.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
