FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

It's so cold in Flint that officials are pushing back the planned opening of a new outdoor ice rink.

The Flint Journal reports that Kettering University officials planned to open the rink at Atwood Stadium on Wednesday but delayed the event until 6 p.m. Friday due to extreme cold and staffing issues.

According to the National Weather Service, it was 8 degrees around midday Wednesday in Flint after dropping as low as 10 below zero earlier.

Once open, the rink will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free.
