A stretch of warm weather in Sochi have some wondering if the Russian resort city is hosting the Winter Olympics or the Summer Olympics.

The warmest day of the games so far was 08 February when the thermometer climbed to 21 C.

A recent five day stretch saw daytime highs of 16 C or higher and temperatures have even climbed above freezing in the nearby alpine venues.

The warmth has created snow-related problems for some of the outdoor events.

Between the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains, Sochi has a subtropical climate with an average high of 10 C and average low of 3 C in February.
