Winter Classic 2011: Heinz Field Rink Build Continues, Forecast Still Predicting Rain

Your Tuesday morning, Winter Classic-is-four-days-away weather update: Weather.com is calling for temperatures around 47 degrees Fahrenheit and a 50 percent chance of rain.

Meanwhile, in Pittsburgh, the NHL continues to build the rink atop the football field. NHL.com has a live web cam on the site which you can see right here:
