Sun on the Opening Ceremony, to bad it's indoors.

The sun doesn't matter...it'll be dark by 5 pm. Rain and cloud cover for those helicopter shots is what matters, and the forecast will probably change considering this is a 2-week outlook.

CTV just had an update, There now trucking in snow from a mountain two hours away. I'm starting too think VANOC may be loosing control of the situation.

Looking great next week, but not too great for the first week of the Games...hopefully the forecast changes:

I hoped that the Olympic gods show mercy and bring colder, more wintery weather to Vancouver in time for the Games -- but that rather looks like the opposite. :( But maybe that's a kind of preparation for Sochi which will probably not be very wintery either.

In any case, you have to pack an umbrella when travelling to Vancouver !

Thank god the Ceremonies are indoors. There's going to be imminent rain on Friday, and it's going to a heavy downpour. This is what we call the Pineapple Express, it's a very moist tropical system coming from the Hawaiian Islands...it won't look great on tv, but at the same time you can bet that Cypress is going to have some problems.

That's a whole lot of not good :-( dude that sucks. Meanwhile, here we've been ok not too bad with that last storm like an inch maybe two, but now we're expecting 5-6 inches and up by Toledo they're getting 8-12inches, they've got a Winter Storm Warning, haha come on Vancouver spare us, and take this weather off our hands!

I wonder how quickly they can switch the venue to Whistler or somewhere else? Or if they can at all at this point
