How can it be freezing rain at 35 degrees????? These weather people need to go home! I will call the News station if they keep lying and making something out of nothing; I'm not putting up with this today!

Not sure...but it's gonna snow here in the afternoon, schools to the south are closed all day, but here we're closing 11:30AM, and tommorow there's gonna be a delay.

That's because the 'temperature' is taken about 6 feet above the ground. The air higher up gets much colder and the surfaces of things at ground level can also be slightly cooler than air temp.

As a result, chilled rain falls at nearly the freezing point and changes to ice on contact.

Also the movement of the drop also removes heat

movement of fluids, a process that is essentially the transfer of heat via mass transfer,...
