National Hockey League officials say they remain committed to starting the Winter Classic between the Penguins and Washington Capitals at Heinz Field shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday, just as scheduled.

Whether the weather will cooperate still isn't clear, however.

Forecasts from the National Weather Service, AccuWeather and the Weather Channel call for anywhere from a 50 to 70 percent chance of at least some rain that day, with high temperatures predicted to reach from 48 to 53 degrees.

Heavy rain, not warmer-than-usual temperatures, is the league's greatest concern.
