Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - With all of our record breaking heat, something most of you haven't been able to do is ice skate, but there is good news. Ice rinks in Fargo should be open by Saturday.

Crews were busy today flooding and preparing the rinks so skaters will be able to hit the ice. Although it is cold enough to open the rinks already, they are in need of a lot of maintenance due to the record setting high temperatures. The high temperatures caused severe ice melt.

CLAY WHITTLESEY - Fargo Park District: “The public thinks because it has been so warm that they think that we can get the opened in one day just because it gets so cold, I mean it was so warm and we lost so much ice and a lot of cracks and bumps and things like that, so it does take a couple days to build up the ice.”

Ice rinks should open this Saturday and will stay open weather permitting.
