I presume you mean wind and rain.
Yes there was quite a bit of rain up until stage 12 and riders in interviews did mention that wind was a factor also in the first week.
Wet/drying roads was certainly a big factor in the crash that took Zabriskie, Van den Broeck and Vinokourov out of the race.
Ofcourse it affects results but everybody is riding in the same conditions.
