Abstract : Weather maps, constant pressure maps and aerological diagrams from the Dushanbinskiy Weather Bureau for 1956-1965 were used for the analysis. 452 days were examined in all during which icing and rime phenomena were observed even at one weather station located close to the planned run of the power line. Icing and rime phenomena were observed in the region of the power line run during six types of synoptic processes (according to the classification of Central Asian weather forecasters. The recurrence of the number of days with icing (%) was calculated independent of the weight of the accretion and separately for cases when the weight of the accretion was 100 g or more.
