Uh that was reported by a Delta MD-88 flying inbound to BUF and reported 1/4" to 1/2" of ice buildup on the wings.

How can they see the wings on a MD-88 and see the ice buildup?...the wings are set far back.

If you didn't notice, there's no anti-icing in the horz stab or the rudder on the ERJ-170/175, 190/195...

Just the wing leading edge and the engine intakes have anti-ice...

the ERJ-135/145 does have anti-icing in the wing and the tail...
