This afternoon I was driving home from a morning hunt and my outside temp guage read 28 degrees, yet it was raining. A week ago it was 34 degrees out and snowing. What exactly causes this varience from the 32 degree freezing point?

Uncle Ed you are experiencing the result of warm air over colder air and visaversa. We really have to watch such things when flying small airplanes without icing countermeasures. We need to know if our safety is higher or lower than our present altitude if we see ice forming on the leading edges of the wings. This information is why we take time to contact FAA weather before every flight.

What Scott Davis said. You have to consider the temperatures and other conditions not just where you are, but in a vertical cross section through the atmosphere.
