(Krasnaya Polyana, Russia) -- Bad weather is creating problems for some outdoor Olympic events in the mountains outside Sochi. A heavy fog has blanketed the area, causing cancellations of both the men's 15-kilometer biathlon mass start and men's snowboard cross. Both events will be rescheduled for Tuesday. The warm temperatures in the area combined with a front off the Black Sea have caused the foggy conditions, which could last throughout the day and into Tuesday according to some reports.
