Today, the week-long cold snap that began on New Year’s Eve will end when temperatures inch up to 50 degrees this afternoon.

One thing we noticed on social media this week were a number of beautiful photographs taken by our Bham Now readers and friends of ice filled waterfalls and coves in North-Central Alabama.

Since the latest long range forecast looks like we’ll have seasonal temperatures between 40 to 60 degrees for the next ten days, below is a photo gallery of nature’s “ice sculptures” that will soon melt away.

Thanks to nature photographers throughout Alabama, we can all remember the cold snap of 2018 for the unique beauty it created.
