Clear ice over PA, Dec 17, 2011.
In the clouds at 6000 ft, no precip around. Base of clouds: 5000 feet. We descended to 4000 ft and accretion stopped. But the ice stayed on the plane all the way to landing. OAT was about 43F on the ground yet it did not melt.
THis small amount had minimal effect on the flight characteristics.
