Will the great “hard freeze” of 2018 ever end?
Yes, but not until Sunday.
According to the National Weather Service and local television news stations, Birmingham will have a hard freeze on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with low temperatures each day in the teens.
If that forecast come true, the Magic City will have experienced temperatures below 20 degrees everyday, on five of the first six days since the new year.

At least Birmingham is not experiencing the “bomb cyclone” that has hit New England.
