Joe cool asked:
(English Question) at the moment it was rain, but I could see clearly what lay ahead; that forecast had been frozen atop the oncoming traffic. I do not understand what " that forecast had been frozen atop the oncoming traffic" means here. Could anyone explain it to me? thankyou ~

Vladys Kovsky It is an interesting turn of phrase. The author plays with the meaning of the word 'forecast' - an estimate of future events. Here the estimate comes in the form of the snow frozen on top of the oncoming vehicles. You can clearly see what weather lies ahead. I like this 'frozen forecast'!
