Ice day

On an ice day, the temperature remains below 0°C all day. Ice days occur more frequently at higher altitudes. However, the number of ice days has decreased at both lower and higher altitudes in recent decades. The number of ice days will continue to decline over the course of this century as a result of climate change. This contributes to the melting of glaciers and the thawing of permafrost.
