While just days ago unseasonably warm weather forced Olympic practice delays, this week’s wintry weather is delaying the actual Games.

Weather conditions in Sochi have forced Olympic organizers to delay the men’s biathlon mass-start race and men’s snowboard cross until Tues., Feb. 17 – weather permitting.

NBC4's Whit Johnson reported live from the Mountain Cluster to talk fog cancellations, ice dancing, bobsledding and more.
