HOLLY (WJRT) (11/09/2017) - Winter could start early for Mid-Michigan skiers.
Mount Holly planned to turn on its snow-making machines on Thursday evening and continue running them all day Friday. That could allow the resort to open its slopes this weekend.
The Flint and Tri-Cities areas could set new record low temperatures on Friday.
The low temperature Friday morning is expected to be around 16 degrees, which would break the daily record of 17 degrees. Friday afternoon's high temperature might only hit 28, which would set a record for the coldest high temperature for Nov. 10.
High temperatures over the weekend will barely slide above the freezing mark with lows in the 20s, which should also help snow production.
Mount Holly officials weren't positive whether they could open this weekend, but remained hopeful on Thursday.
