Poked around in the Seattle ridge area today to further investigate this rime
crust (photos). We found it to be widespread on all aspects above ~1600 feet.
Light density stellar crystals appear to be the layer directly beneath this
breakable eggshell-like crust.
CNFAIC forecasters will be paying close attention to this layer as the next
round of storms arrives in south-central AK.
NOTE: We did not find any evidence of this rime crust today in the Summit Lake
