In a sign that winter is coming, ice skating rinks at North Park and South Park open at 4:30 p.m. Friday.

The Allegheny County Parks Department had planned to open the rinks Thursday but could not because of unseasonably warm temperatures earlier in the week. Park employees look for temperatures consistently below 40 degrees, said Amie Downs, a county spokeswoman.

High temperatures will not reach much higher than 50 degrees over the weekend. Lows will remain in the 30s, according to the National Weather Service.

The rinks are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
