It’s no secret that 2024 has gotten off to a chilly start in Alabama, and we’ve experienced some of the coldest temps in recent memory. Here are some fast facts about low temperatures and lots of snow throughout the state.

Even when the thermostat says it’s freezing outside, it can feel much colder due to wind chill. Along with the snow and ice, this week has brought some intense winds to Alabama—especially in the northern part of the state.

Here were some of the lowest wind chill temperatures on January 16 across North Alabama, according to the National Weather Service:

  • Hazel Green + Huntsville/Madison: -8
