"Of October, it will be wet and gusty and chilly with highs only around 50 in puget sound. In the coming four weather center, I meteorologist Shannon O'Donnell.

Well, not too deep anyway. We have 59 in downtown Seattle and our northwest news time, 6 O 6. Kroger is attempt to merge with Safeway Albertsons could force them to sell dozens of stores in the west and northwest news radio's Ryan Harris says that could mean fewer choices for me and you. More consolidation probably won't be good for you, says Seattle business magazine editor rob Smith, but he says one of the reasons the owner of Fred Meyer and Q FC wants to become the country's largest grocer is power over the supply chain as food costs go up. So they can get better bargains in better deals. Our shopper is going to come because things are maybe going to be cheaper. Are they going to go to the big boys rather than the independents? I think that's what Kroger and Albertsons are being on. So not only would that make things tougher on independent stores, but rob tells me the new behemoth with dozens of distribution centers likely also wants a big foothold in the online market, with 5000 stores they'd probably be forced to sell some to avoid antitrust concerns, especially with so many in the west, but rob says we have stores clustered all over the place. Grocery stores are going to go where the people are. But do we need 5 or 6 grocery stores within a square mile radius? I would suggest we don't. With indie grossers already expressing their worry, a U.S. Senate panel will hold an antitrust hearing on the merger plans next month. Ryan Harris, northwest news radio. Word today that Starbucks is closing down one of its Tacoma locations

"It's tuesday and this is seattle now all this week were waiting into the elements earth fire. Air water were meeting people who are rising to meet the challenges the elements bring and today. It's a bit peculiar. Puget sound has dozens. Maybe hundreds of votes that have been left to die. They're abandoned derelict with no owner or crew. They got to be too much for the owners to maintain and our left adrift producer. Alec cowan will bring us that story. But first let's get you caught up. Seattle city council has banned the use of tear gas and pepper spray. At protests by police. They've passed a bill yesterday afternoon. That also limits seattle police use of acoustic weapons or water cannons. It's not a done deal. Though before any restrictions could take effect. They'll have to be reviewed by the department of justice. As part of spd's federal consent decree under the ordinance. Tear-gas would still be allowed. In circumstances where it's deemed that a group poses a physical risk to people nearby the list of covert nineteen cases linked to a country music festival at the gorge. Amphitheatre is growing public health officials with the grant county health district where the gorge is have now tracked two hundred ten cases of people who went to the watershed music festival. If you went officials are urging you to self quarantine and dacoven test. The brandi carlile show went on as normal this past weekend. But the next two shows at the gorge will require vaccination or a negative cova test result. And stu he's a mom which came as a surprise. Actually we know her. As basketball.

Potentially a longer fire season and just basically fast forwarded our fire weather season. Things are gonna be drying out up there, Which doesn't really sit well with locals like Taconic Smith. We had about 175% snowpack, so to see that much snow in the Cascades Diminished so quickly was just incredible.
