The 2024 Winter Classic is today, and for the first time, the Pacific Northwest is home to the annual NHL outdoor game. 

The Kraken and the Golden Knights are kicking off the new year in style, as the two youngest NHL franchises get their first Winter Classic. T-Mobile Park, the home to MLB’s Mariners, is the site for today’s action. 

While Seattle may be known for his rainy weather, that does not look like that will be the case for the outdoor contest. Vegas and Seattle should get ideal conditions for the game, with fair weather expected.
