fades away? they put on games of opposite seasons. they sit in lands of opposite hemispheres but sochi russia and rio de janeiro brazil share a similar tale. hosting the olympics and hoping it will pay off. sochi did it glitzy, it the arena sparkled at night. rio spent billions for sure, but they have offered a more austere olympics. their venues impress less on the outside, though they still shine but, what will become of them? in sochi, we wondered if the massive spending would go to waste. two years later, leaders are still trying to fill the venues and make it work. in rio, we wonder about the venues. we worry about the economy. nearly every brazilian we have met fears the government has poured so much money into the games that it will struggle to support its people. essentially, these games bring the same conflicts as any other.

the highest ones in northern arizona. the same for the white mountains. so expect the storms to build to the north and east and drop into the valley later in the afternoon. now, here is the setup that is going to change as we head earlier in the week. there is that low pressure center. it is going to move through here. result in the storms for tomorrow. but as high pressure begins to build in, the southern portion of california, that is going to bring dry air right back down into the region. and that is going to mean a drying trend coming in starting on monday. an high temperatures tomorrow, pretty nice. 69 in flagstaff. 73 in show low. check out your seven day forecast. the good news is the temperatures just about average. then by next weekend, that chance of rain comes back into the forecast. >> all right thank you matt. still ahead on 12news at 10:00, the big honor for simone biles. the first american woman to win four gold medals in gymnastics
