Here is meteorologist Kristen Clark. Don't be surprised to see a few wet snowflakes falling from the sky later on today. For now, we're tracking a pretty widespread, steady rain across all of western Washington that soon may change over to a rain snow mix with the arrival of much colder air by the end of today that transition to snow may happen quicker. Across Washington's North coast, keeping an eye on port Angeles and swim throughout the day as those areas of the best potential, maybe several inches of a slushy accumulation, as well as a mountainous and valleys, locations of welcome Skagit County. Now, how about our very own foothills here across Central peaches sound? Well, that's where we could see maybe a quick inch on the grassy surfaces near North Bend. Gotta keep an eye on that convergence zone. Of course, we can see heavy precipitation That could follows heavy snow for a brief time later this afternoon, But a lot of the snow melts incident instantly on contact with the pavement. So just reduction of visibility for many bursts of snow and maybe a slushy inch on the grassy surfaces for our hilltops that are above 500 ft. In elevation and the Common Weather Center and meteorologist Kristen Clarke in Bellingham, or it's 42 Right now, in Olympia, cloudy and 44 manned, We have rain in downtown Seattle.

Some of those places Kristin mentioned could get up to 18 inches of snow on camels. Carleen Johnson spoke with the National Weather Service about all this this morning. Skiers and snowboarders are in luck with plenty of snow over the next 24 hours, followed by cooler air. That means it'll stick around. But down here, do you see any mix of brains personal. It's not expected to last. My whole ski with the Seattle National Weather Service says it's just not going to be cold enough to give us a white Christmas in the lowlands. The risk of widespread flooding or slides has receded. That's good news. The school Komische River in Mason County, the only river seeing minor flooding.

"Earlier this evening. Since then, we've cooled down pretty rapidly beautiful view of the Christmas tree atop the needle. On this evening. We're talking about starry skies above downtown Seattle, where it's 45 degrees, but elsewhere. It's a little bit different than that. Go back to where we were earlier this afternoon because it was kind of remarkable 60 degrees. Did you feel that warm kind of felt like spring in the sunshine today, especially around parts of King County? That's 60. Its attack airport tied the record for this day, and it was all because of those very gusty winds that were just howling and funneling through the gaps in the Cascades spilling into the foothill communities below. Places like North Bend and is to quote clocking winds between 30 and 40, MPH and all of that descending air through Seattle, warm things up quite a bit. And so that's what we had that record high. Now the winds were dying down, and in fact you can see they're all dead Common Bremerton, Olympian Centralia. At the same time when you're calm like that the temperatures can really start to plunge. Case in point where in the twenties around Olympia, Tom Water into coma, and then you start losing your visibility. We've got the fog already down to a half mile visibility right now in Centralia. I'm expecting that to bloom and grow all the way off the I five corridor into at least two coma tomorrow morning. So that's where we're going to see some problems out of the gate with some freezing fog and some black guys so You see the low visibility just count on the fact that it could also be icy out there. Secondly, after that, after the morning fog, all of a sudden we start to wipe that out because we start clouding up. So our next weather maker tomorrow will be this weak disturbance that actually brings a couple of Sprinkles to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and maybe the North Coast line as well. He can see as we head into Friday. It clears right back out. So just one day at the clouds, and then we're back to the sunshine again by Friday. In the meantime, our big problem overnight is going to be that fog, low visibility and the potential for the black guys from the freezing fog highs tomorrow. Back in the forties to about 50. So look at Seattle 48 degrees or so, Ah, far cry from the 60 we had is that record earlier today and again, the clouds spilling in just about everywhere so no longer quite as bright blue is it was for earlier this afternoon, upper forties aware and forward and we'll be back into the forties to about 50 at the beaches. Unlikely a few Sprinkles. They're around forks in Ocean shores as well. Eastern Washington. Your big problem has not only been the fog, the low visibility and the black eyes but also the air quality issues that continues to be a problem simply because we have very little wind there. We have very little in the way of any steering mechanism. And so the pollutants are starting to build up to Up over the Cascades. Well, gosh, that would be a perfect place to be. It'll be partly sunny above the clouds that are coming in and you're the ocean beaches as we head into Friday. We'll have fog again in the morning. So that will be another issue Friday morning, but a gorgeous wrap up to the work in school week. We can no longer looks quite is Dr We do have one little disturbance to in Saturday night to Sunday. So if you're running out to get the Christmas tree or you want to string the holiday lights probably want to do so either early on Saturday or throughout the day on Sunday. Next week. It definitely looks like the real December shows up. So enjoy the rest of the sunshine while the getting is still good..

"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north.

Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

"Washington state and southern Vancouver Island are home to a distinct population of killer whales called the southern resident orcas. Black. On top with contrasting white I and saddle patches each has its own distinctive markings. From may through October tourists flock to this region to see the southern residents revered for their social nature and strong family ties offspring remain with their mothers for all of their adult lives. But, lately, those lives are being cut short. cavs are dying before they're born or shortly afterwards. The plight of one mother Orca and her calf captured global media attention a few summers ago. Marine biologists are keeping a close eye on an endangered Orca off the waters around the southern Gulf islands. Named Talla J. Thirty five to researchers her calf lived only about thirty minutes but instead of letting it fall to the ocean floor Tala carried the dead calf pushing it around with her nose for an unprecedented amount of time and hundreds of miles researchers say the whales are known to grieve, but never for this many days Orca known as j thirty five is still carrying her baby seventeen days. Later, the mother is going through a deep grieving process, but since then the mother has been getting weaker and weaker as choice to carry, it's dead offspring above the water assigned, she may be experiencing difficult and complex emotions not so unlike our own. Scientists believe calf died of starvation. The incident was well documented by researchers like Paul Cotterell with the Department of fisheries and Oceans Canada. I was out for the whole two weeks and it was very very emotional to see. Just, that bond and hell mum was just so they're reluctant to to let go of the calf. Cattrall knows these whales well, he and other researchers have been closely documenting all three southern resident family pods known as J K and L. The DFO for twenty, three years these animals are photographed in did. All of them every year. So we know. All the animals and we also know. When calves are born and went animals die. So this population is a very well studied in very well understood. Researchers know that the ORCA food supply Chinook salmon is becoming smaller in size and there are fewer salmon being born mostly because of overfishing. And the wheels are having more trouble finding the salmon that is still around because of a dramatic increase in ship traffic in this area. Perhaps, the biggest challenge, these marine mammals face.

The Good Pirate

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate.
