FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another hot and humid day"

We managed to climb into the 90s once again yesterday, making that the third day in row so far this spring season. The summer-like heat will continue over the next couple of days, before relief comes in the form of rain by late in the week.

A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the late morning and mid day hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle 80s by noon. With high pressure to our east, a southerly flow will pump in more heat and moisture. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a couple of spotty showers and storms deep inland. Daytime highs will eventually top out near 90° in town, with cooler readings at the beaches and hotter temperatures inland.

A very slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Wednesday. As steering winds remain from the southwest, expect any rain that develops to sail east of the interstate. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Return to index of stories...

MISSING PLANE-PKG


THE WORLD WAS SHOCKED WHEN FLIGHT 370 VANISHED ON MARCH 8.

6 WEEKS LATER EXTENSIVE SEARCHES IN THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN HAVE YIELDED SATELLITE PINGS, BUT NO WRECKAGE.

"This is probably the most difficult search in human history"

TODAY THE PRIME MINISTER ADMITTED THE CHANCE OF FINDING DEBRIS ON THE OCEAN SURFACE IS SLIM TO NONE.

HE SAYS EFFORTS WILL NOW FOCUS ON THE OCEAN FLOOR.

BUT ADELAIDE-BASED EXPLORATION COMPANY, GEORESONANCE, BELIEVES AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN LOOKING IN THE WRONG PLACE.

IT STARTED ITS OWN SEARCH FOR THE MISSING AIRCRAFT ON MARCH 10.

"The technology we use was originally designed to find nuclear warheads, submarines. Our team in the ukraine decided we should try and help."

THE COMPANY SURVEYED OVER 2 MILLION SQUARE KILOMETERS OF THE POSSIBLE CRASH ZONE, USING IMAGES OBTAINED FROM SATELLITES AND AIRCRAFT.

SCIENTISTS FOCUSED THEIR EFFORTS NORTH OF THE FLIGHT'S LAST KNOWN LOCATION, USING OVER 20 TECHNOLOGIES TO ANALYZE DATA, INCLUDING A NUCLEAR REACTOR.

THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT THEY FOUND IN THE BAY OF BENGAL.

"Our team was very excited when we found what we believe to be the wreckage of a commercial airliner."

"We identified chemical elements and materials that make up a boeing 777."

THEY SENT AN INITIAL REPORT TO AUTHORITIES WHILE THE BLACKBOX STILL HAD TWO WEEKS OF BATTERY POWER.

AND THEN VERIFIED THEIR FINDINGS BY ANALYZING IMAGES FROM THE SAME AREA ON MARCH 5, THREE DAYS BEFORE THE PLANE DISAPPEARED.

"The wreckage wasn't there prior to the disappearance."

THE FULL REPORT WAS DELIVERED ON APRIL 15.

"We're not trying to say that it definitely is mh 370 but it's a lead that should be followed up"

CARL DORSCH HAS USED THE COMPANY'S TECHNOLOGY FOR OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION.

HE BELIEVES THEY COULD BE ONTO SOMETHING.

"I just thought they had a moral duty."

NEW NBA COMMISSIONER ADAM SILVER HAS CALLED A NEWS CONFERENCE THIS AFTERNOON TO ADDRESS ALLEGATIONS THAT L-A CLIPPERS OWNER DONALD STERLING WAS CAUGHT ON TAPE RANTING AGAINST AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

"If the NBA deals with this in a very quick and forthright manner and they will continue to have some credibility."

"You would hope that the treatment is fair the hope that it's a result that satisfies players the fans sponsors everybody at large."

MAGIC JOHNSON'S PHOTO WITH STERLING'S EX-GIRLFRIEND ON INSTAGRAM SPARKED THE CONTROVERSY.

AT A SCHOLARSHIP DINNER IN INDIANA LAST NIGHT, JOHNSON SAID AGAIN - STERLING SHOULD BE FORCED OUT - BUT DODGED REPEATED QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER HE'S TRYING TO BUY THE TEAM HIMSELF:

"If you could buy it would you buy it? I said the same thing, the team is owned by a man already. So let's move on past the ownership thing."

SPONSORS ARE DROPPING QUICKLY:

CARMAX, KIA, MERCEDES, VIRGIN AMERICA, RED BULL, CORONA AND STATE FARM AND SPRINT HAVE ALL SAID THEY'RE STEPPING BACK OR PULLING OUT:

"They are hitting him where it counts, his pocket book, his wallet, the team's value, hurting a potential sale."

LANDSLIDE SEARCH OVER-TRX VO TC MON


IT'S BEEN MORE THAN A MONTH SINCE THAT DEADLY LANDSLIDE IN WASHINGTON STATE.

OFFICIALS DECIDED TO CALL THE SEARCH OFF.

LANDSLIDE SEARCH OVER-PKG


AFTER RECOVERING 41 BODIES FROM THE OSO LANDSLIDE - TODAY SNOHOMISH COUNTY OFFICIALS CALLED OFF THE ACTIVE SEARCH FOR THE FINAL TWO: KRIS REGELBRUGGE AND STEVE HADAWAY.

This has been a difficult decision because I know Kris and Steve's families are both looking for closure.

SHERIFF TY TRENARY SAID THE AREAS WHERE THE TWO BODIES ARE BELIEVED TO BE ARE EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS TO REACH - ESPECIALLY WITH THE STILLAGUAMISH RIVER RUNNING HIGH.

THE COUNTY IS NOW LOOKING TO THE LONG-TERM AND HAS FORMED A RECOVERY TEAM TO HELP WITH EVERYTHING FROM THE ECONOMY TO MENTAL HEALTH.

I ASKED COUNTY EXECUTIVE JOHN LOVICK IF PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO RE-BUILD ON THE SITE.

I don't know the answer to that obviously we're going to talk about that later its probably premature to talk about it now.

LOVICK SAID IT WAS ALSO TOO SOON TO TALK ABOUT A MEMORIAL ON THE SITE - OR WHETHER THE COUNTY SHOULD BUY UP THE LAND.

I ALSO ASKED THE COUNTY'S PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR ABOUT THE HILLSIDE SLIDING MORE.

How concerned are you about another slide on that site as we talk about reopening the road?

That's a difficult question. that slide according to what the geologists have told me has pretty much slid and the pressure's been relieved. Return to index of stories...


BEST TASTING DRINK ON FLIGHT-2 SHOT


SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT --

YOUR TASTE BUDS ARE OUTTA WHACK AT 30-THOUSAND FEET.

THAT MEANS DRINKS TASTE DIFFERENTLY.

AND AS NICK CILETTI EXPLAINS --

IT MAY BE WHY YOU CRAVE CERTAIN THINGS. Return to index of stories...


BEST TASTING DRINK ON FLIGHT-PKG


I'VE GOT ONE WORD FOR YOU -- UMAMI. NEVER HEARD OF IT? WELL ALL YOU FREQUENT FLYERS MAY WANT TO LISTEN UP.

IF YOU'VE EVER THOUGHT THAT YOUR DRINK OR FOOD TASTES DIFFERENT ON BOARD AN AIRCRAFT, YOU MAY BE RIGHT. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT LOUD ENGINE NOISE MAY ALTER OUR ABILITY TO TASTE FLAVORS. BUT THE TASTE OF UMAMI IS NOT AFFECTED.

SO WHAT IS UMAMI? IT'S OFTEN CALLED THE "FIFTH TASTE". THE OTHERS ARE SALTY, BITTER, SWEET AND SOUR. SOME DESCRIBE UMAMI AS A SAVORY FLAVOR.

AND THAT MAY EXPLAIN YOUR MID-AIR CRAVING FOR TOMATO JUICE OR A BLOODY MARY. TOMATOES ARE RICH IN UMAMI AND THEREFORE DRINKS THAT ARE TOMATO-BASED, MAY TASTE BETTER THAN OTHERS WHEN YOU ARE IN THE AIR.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU SHOULD SKIP WATER IN FAVOR OF A BLOODY MARY BUT IF YOU ARE PLANNING A SUMMER TRIP THAT INCLUDES AIR TRAVEL, YOU MAY WANT TO GIVE A TOMATO BASED DRINK A TRY WHILE YOU ARE IN THE SKY. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another hot and humid day"

We managed to climb into the 90s once again yesterday, making that the third day in row so far this spring season. The summer-like heat will continue over the next couple of days, before relief comes in the form of rain by late in the week.

A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the late morning and mid day hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle 80s by noon. With high pressure to our east, a southerly flow will pump in more heat and moisture. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a couple of spotty showers and storms deep inland. Daytime highs will eventually top out near 90° in town, with cooler readings at the beaches and hotter temperatures inland.

A very slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Wednesday. As steering winds remain from the southwest, expect any rain that develops to sail east of the interstate. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Return to index of stories...
