The weather center adds a high-tech pattern to the walls, with a plexi and graphic-fronted desk.

With the Olympics beginning Friday, the station took advantage of the event to upgrade and bring more technology to its storytelling.

Kathy Mosher-Boule of Mobo Creative served as a project consultant with Devlin Design Group and KXAN-TV on the sets development.
