Rain in the forecast for Winter Classic


Rain is in the forecast for St. Louis on Monday, Jan. 2, and that could cause issues for the Winter Classic (on NBC) at Busch Stadium.

The Blues and Blackhawks are scheduled to start at just after 1 p.m. ET. Whether the game begins on time will depend on the amount of rain that’s falling. They can’t play if it’s heavy rain, but light showers are acceptable.

At the very least, it doesn’t appear as if glare will cause any problems for the players (like it’s done in the past), as the forecast for Jan. 2 does not include extended periods of sun.

From The Weather Network:


Glare could, indeed, be an issue for the Centennial Classic, between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings, on Sunday, Jan. 1, in Toronto.

From The Weather Network:


The Leafs and Wings are scheduled to start at around 3 p.m. ET (on NBC). If it’s too sunny, the game could be delayed.
