The City of St. Cloud has closed all city ice skating rinks effective immediately, including Lake George, due to the recent January thaw. The rinks will remain closed until further notice.

You can stay on top of the rink situation on the City of St. Cloud's website HERE.

As far as the forecast is concerned, high temperatures look as though the rinks will be ice-challenged into early February, with the ten-day outlook calling for above average temps into the first week of February.
