Anvil cloud spotted over Washington, British Columbia — You may have spotted it over the mountains near Vancouver, B.C. or the Bellingham area - a strange looking cloud with a flat top that resembles a giant anvil. The technical name for this type of cloud is cumulonimbus incus, also referred to as an anvil cloud.

Perseid meteor shower to peak Friday morning — Skywatchers are always excited for August. Stargazing is at its best with warm and generally clear nights - and it's the time for the Perseid meteor shower, considered the most consistent performer of all of the annual showers. Normally without any meteor showers we see 5-10 meteors per hour in areas with a dark sky (though this varies a bit by season).

Rich Marriott recounts his experience at Mount St. Helens — When the first earthquakes occurred on Mount St. Helens on March 16, 1980, I was working as a meteorologist for the U.S. Forest Service at the Northwest Avalanche Center. Those earthquakes also triggered widespread large avalanche on the mountain in the late winter snowpack.

Seattle Area Forecast — Cooler air for Monday OVERNIGHT: Areas of smoke clearing. Mostly clear skies except along the coast and in the southwest interior where skies will become mostly cloudy.

KING 5 Special: The Solar Threat — The sun is a source of heat and life here on Earth, but did you know there are storms on the sun's surface, including giant flares and explosions, that can send a shower of charged particles toward our planet?
