A common misconception. Salt lowers the FREEZING POINT of water, not the temperature. Normally water turns to ice at 0 Celsius / 32 Fahrenheit, but with salt added, that might drop to -5 C or 23 F, meaning that water at that temperature will run off as liquid, rather than having to be plowed, as ice/snow.

In Ye Olde Days of summer, salt was an essential component of the hand cranked Ice Cream Bucket because it allowed the supercooled water to effectively circulate around the milk-filled cylinder. Chunky ice would not have cooled it nearly so fast, condemning the poor kid to a lot more cranking before he could taste his sweet dish.

It takes energy for the salt crystals to break apart into tiny particles small enough to dissolve in the water. This needed energy is obtained by removing heat from the water which causes the water to be colder.

Salt doesn't affect the temp of water. Salt affects the freezing point and boiling point of water. When you add salt to water you no longer have pure water so the boiling point and freezing point will not be the same as pure water

Salt doesn't lower the temperature of water. Rather, salt water has a lower freezing point than normal water, which can cause it to be colder while remaining in a liquid state.
