EtymologyEdit

Attested since the late 17th century,[1][2] alongside Scots haar (cold easterly wind; misty wind; cold fog or mist).[3]

Perhaps ultimately from Middle Dutch hare (cold wind) or a related Low German word; compare Dutch harig (windy; foggy, misty), Saterland Frisian harig (misty).[3][4]

Alternatively, perhaps simply a northern English or Scottish variant of hoar,[2] or a borrowing of Old Norse hárr (hoary).[1]

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

haar (countable and uncountable, plural haars)

  1. (especially Northern England, Scotland) Thick, cold, wet fog along the northeastern coast of Northern England and Scotland.
