GAYLORD, Mich. (AP) - Public schools in Detroit, Ann Arbor and most of the rest of populous southeastern Michigan have called off Friday’s classes in the face of forecasts of record-setting cold temperatures making it dangerous to venture outdoors.

The National Weather Service predicts lows early Friday will range from minus 13 to minus 30 in the Upper Peninsula, minus 22-23 in much of the northern Lower Peninsula and minus 13-26 in southern and central Michigan.

The National Weather Service says the temperature reached minus 5 Thursday morning at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, one degree below the previous Detroit record for the date from 1936.

Authorities say 88-year-old Wallace Harold Nolff of Fife Lake died when the car he was riding in struck a snowbank Wednesday in Grand Traverse County.
