Don't get your hopes up... Compare to last year (approximately Mt. Holly/Flint):

History : Weather Underground

In retrospect I find it hard to believe they were able to open last year on 11/27. Those daytime highs are still awfully high in the 40s, but there were only 6 days prior to Black Friday with above-freezing overnight lows, and most of those were still in the 30s. This year we have overnight lows in the 40s and 50s. The ground isn't even close to freezing.
