BOSTON – We’re just a few minutes from the Flyers and Bruins taking the ice for warmups here at Fenway Park.

It looks now (11:45 a.m.) like the 2010 Winter Classic will go off without a hitch. There are light clouds with great visibility as Fenway is already starting to fill with fans. At one point this morning, the sun was actually breaking through the clouds. The current temperature is 31 degrees but feels like 24 with the wind chill.

The National Weather Service is calling for light snow or flurries during the game. That shouldn’t present a problem. It snowed in Buffalo at the first Winter Classic on Jan. 1, 2008, which caused minor delays during the game to clear the snow buildup off the ice.

"Awesome," NHL ice guru Dan Craig said this morning of the conditions of the ice. "The Good Lord couldn't have done better for us right now."

Craig said the temperature of the ice is currently 24 degree. He will be slowly lowering the temperature of the ice as the temperature outside rises.

The NHL was originally worried – looking at the weather forecast days out – that rain and snow would derail the league’s most anticipated regular season game. Tune in at 1 o’clock on NBC.
