On a cold winter's day an advancing warm front can wedge up and over colder air at the surface creating a layer of warm air between two cold layers. Snow falling from the higher layer melts into raindrops as it passes through the warm layer. When the rain falls into the cold surface layer it becomes supercooled and will instantly freeze when it hits power lines, roads, and trees. This coating is called glaze.
