Hockey fans in Chicago will have to brace for the winter weather for this weekend's outdoor hockey game at Soldier Field.
The puck is set to drop at 8 p.m. Saturday when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Temperatures for the game are forecast to slowly drop through the teens, but a northerly breeze will result in AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures near zero.
These temperatures are beneficial for playing conditions as the idea ice surface temperature for an NHL rink is 22 degrees Fahrenheit, according to NHL.com.
Snow will be a bigger issue; however, as it moves in Saturday afternoon and continues through the night.
Although the snow may add to the excitement, snow makes for tougher playing conditions as accumulation on the ice makes it more difficult for players to pass and maintain control of the puck.
This snow is likely to cause more stoppages in play as it will need to be removed from the ice rink as it accumulates.
Folks traveling to and from the stadium should use caution as snow may cause slick road conditions around the city.
A snow shower or two will linger through Sunday as fresh frigid air arrives.
Highs on Sunday and Monday will be in the upper teens with lows in the single digits.
Temperatures are expected to reach the 30s once again by Thursday.
