Icicles Form on Ceiling Fan Amid Freezing Temperatures in Texas

A man in Texas discovered icicles had formed on a ceiling fan at his Austin home on Monday, February 15, as the Lone Star State experienced freezing temperatures.

Clifton Highfield, who shot this footage, told Storyful the icicles developed “when a water line broke and was leaking through the ceiling fan.”

The National Weather Service (NWS) on Wednesday issued another winter storm warning for much of Texas, saying as much as eight inches of snow could accumulate in parts of the state.

However, the agency later said sunnier conditions would set in by the following week.

“There is a light at the end of the tunnel!” the NWS said. “Warmer weather is headed our way, as early as this Saturday. Sunshine will return in earnest, with temperatures slowly but surely making it back into the 50s and 60s by early next week.” Credit: Clifton Highfield via Storyful
