VANCOUVER, British Columbia (KWWL) - While fog, snow and rain are a big worry for organizers of the skiing and snowboarding events, it's not a concern for tonight's opening ceremonies.

 

The XXI Olympic Winter Games be the first to hold them indoors.

About 55,000 spectators are expected to pack the BC Place Stadium. It's got the largest air-supported dome in North America.

And that could prove a blessing. Forecasters predict showers all weekend.
