CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) — The cold temperatures are changing plans at the new ice rink in Carmel.

The city tweeted this message this afternoon.

The ice rink is closed today, Dec. 28 due to "unsafe and bitter cold temperatures."

The tweet also says that the city hopes to open the rink tomorrow, weather permitting.

If you weren't able to get out on the ice today -- don't worry.

The rink will be open through March 11, according to the city of Carmel.

From now until January 7th you can skate from 12:30 in the afternoon to 10 p-m.

And if you go out on New Year's Eve -- skating is open until 1 a-m.

Of course you'll want to check the forecast -- because with this cold snap in place -- the city may decide to close early again.
