Sat update: Weather delays Winter Classic til 8 PM

The Caps face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the much anticipated "Winter Classic" this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field. As the game is being played in the open air, National Hockey League officials are keeping a watchful eye on the weather. The National Weather Service's GFS model indicates between a quarter and half inch of rain is likely to fall in Pittsburgh during the six hours spanning the period prior to game time and the game itself. The European forecast model, not shown, simulates a similar amount of rain.

Election 2010: Where will the weather matter?

Most of today's marquee election matchups, including the Harry Reid-Sharon Angle Senate showdown in Nevada and the three-way Senate race in Florida, won't have any weather issues to deal with. Bad weather does, however, have the potential to play a role in a few races of interest.

ElectionCast: Frosty start, then sun-filled skies

If you're off to the polls early, you may need an ice-scraper and a little extra time to clean off your windows. But after about 8 a.m or 9 a.m., the sun goes to work and temperatures steadily progress well into the 40s by around lunch time. The most pleasant time to vote will be in the afternoon, when highs reach the low 50s under mostly clear skies. All-in-all, it's quite a chilly election day with high temperatures about 8-10 degrees below average.
