February 25, 2010 — After about a week of mild conditions, the games are ending with wet weather. The Weather Network's Oga Nwobosi has the latest from Vancouver.
It was clear and dry for the most part in Vancouver today, but that's all expected to end.
A storm is moving in tonight and it's bringing rain and snow with it. And we can't forget about the wind. Overnight, the region can expect gusts up to 90 kilometres per hour.
Cypress Mountain got about 15 centimetres of snow over the last couple of days. And after a week of looking to the skies for snow, it wasn't a welcomed condition. The recent arrival of the snow clogged the carefully groomed runs.
Cypress and Whistler are both expected to see more rain and snow starting tomorrow and lasting through to Saturday.
Rob Davis is a meteorologist at The Weather Network. He says, 'we're expecting another storm tonight and for much of tomorrow for the west coast. Snow levels will be fairly high, which means event venues will see persistent rain throughout the day.'
Davis mentions that the games are ending much like they began. 'It started very unsettled and after a week of mild conditions, it looks like the games are ending on an unsettled note as well.'
Although this latest dose of wintry weather is causing problems, the sunny and dry weather that hit the region last week brought its own set of issues as well.
It's safe to say the weather for the 2010 Vancouver Games will not be receiving a gold medal this time.
