JACKSON, Wyo. — Temperatures were well below freezing in the Jackson Hole valley this morning, breaking records for this time of year.

Buckrail photographer Nick Sulzer stepped out this morning to snap a few photos of the frosted trees and “sea smoke” over the rivers and creeks.

“Sea smoke” is the term coined for the fog that forms over bodies of water when the air temperature is drastically colder than the water temperature.

The phenomenon is nothing new here but this morning, the scene was dramatic before the sun started shining and warmed things up.

The cold snap shouldn’t last long says Buckrail Meterologist Alan Smith. Highs are expected to be in the upper 20s to 30s on Friday and in the low 40s on Saturday.
