  • SOCHI, Russia — The warm temperatures at the Sochi Winter Olympics are forecast to get even warmer today.
    Not a single Olympic site is expected to even approach freezing at any point during the day, and the sun is likely to shine.
    International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach told The Associated Press that the weather is not posing a "major risk" to the games, since organizers have stored spare snow. And past Winter Games have also seen warm-weather problems.
    But the temperatures in Sochi have forced a schedule adjustment for today, with the downhill portion of the men's super-combined pushed up an hour, before the sun has time to warm up the snow.
    Here's what today's daytime temperature forecast looks like at various Olympic sites, according to organizers:
    • Coastal cluster, site of skating venues: 9-17 degrees C (48-63 F)
    • Rosa Khutor Alpine Center: 8-13 C (46-55 F)
    • Laura Cross Country and biathlon site: 10-14 C (50-57 F)
    • Rosa Khutor Extreme Park: 8-14 C (46-57 F)
    • Gorki Ski Jumping Center: 9-16 C (48-61 F)
    • Sanki Sliding Center: 8-16 C (46-61 F)
