(LAPEER) -- Rain lead to ice in some parts of Michigan, closing schools in rural areas and knocking out electricity. Consumers Energy says hundreds of people lost power in downtown Flint Friday morning. Lapeer schools in Lapeer County told kids to stay home because rural roads were too slick. The weekend also started early for other schools in the Thumb, including Harbor Beach, Highland Pines in Caro, Brown City, Cass City, Kingston, Mayville, Millington, North Branch, Capac, Memphis, and Yale. Despite the slippery roads, the weather is expected to turn much warmer in much of the state this weekend with high temperatures in the 50's.
