With January 1 just two weeks away, today brings us some of our first glimpses of what the weather might look like in Pittsburgh for the Winter Classic. Per MyForecast.com (above), we may be in for "[a]n icy mix changing to snow," the first part of which could certainly be somewhat troublesome. AccuWeather.com, however, isn't calling for any afternoon precipitation just yet. Stay tuned, as they say.
The two forecasts do agree on one thing, though: high temperatures of 36 degrees, which is normal. Well, normal for outdoors in Pittsburgh on New Year's Day, anyway - not necessarily normal for an NHL hockey game.
