I'm no mechanic, and I'm not sure what, under the hood, could make a loud popping noise. Did you check the pipes leading in and out of the AC compressor? I wonder if you lost pressure in that system. I think you'd have some residual cooling ability, but it wouldn't last. I would also check your radiator hoses and jug. Anything under pressure could make a loud noise, but you'd generally expect to see evidence of a failure.
