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. Lows in the upper 40's to upper 50's. MONDAY: Puget Sound Forecast: Mostly sunny skies with areas of morning clouds along shorelines.

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?
