Turning our attention now to national news the B.C. wildfire service says it's expecting a mixed bag from the weather as it continues to battle fires throughout the province. >> Well, the next couple of days we're expecting some highly variable fire conditions. So we're going to have some places we'll get rain. >> Others will stay dry. There's also the threat of thunderstorms in some areas which could bring lightning and gusty winds and the rain might not hit some of the areas that need it the most with the dry conditions in the province's northeast expected to continue over the next couple of days. >> In fort nelson there's also hope evacuees could return by early next week. >> And powerful storms killed at least nine people and left a wide trail of destruction today across texas, oklahoma and arkansas.

And now at 21 years old she's achieved many goals along her journey. >> So I've been black for six years now. Getting my black belt was easily the hardest thing I've ever done but also proudest thing I've ever done. I'm very, very pleased. It was definitely not easy. I worked very hard and to be the champion you have to train with champion. So training here at roc athletics lots of people who themselves have been champions helped me get to where I am. >> Sterk can be seen playing many different roles from teach in the yard to another generation to being a role model for small children at memorial university's day care while also doing her studies at the university as well. >> I teach karate here so I am able to share my knowledge to the students and anything I learned to pass on to them and then get them to achieve their goals. >> And just this past march she traveled to montreal for a tournament and returned home with a gold medal. >> I won a grand champion up in montreal. I was the only competitor from newfoundland to go up and I came away with a gold and two silver. And over the years I've done the few national and international tournaments and I also have another patch here from 2019 from the same tournament I went to their last month. So it was good to go back to that same tournament and still do good and train hard. >> Rebecca sturgis strong, determined, disciplined and brave. Her ambition has helped her get where she is today but her journey continues. >> Biggest thing I found was not giving up. Just keep going. Even if I was the only girl

in the class you know what? I'm going to be the only girl to get it done to do it and that keeps me teaching a lot to try to be a role model for other young girls and they see me okay, she's a black belt. >> I can get that too, you know I can do that. >> She has learned many life lessons through karate over the years and carries that with her in her everyday life. >> Self-discipline would definitely be something that I use my everyday life whether that be for my school work for my job anything that I know I have to do and set a goal to then knowing and karate I put my goal and I got my black belt . This this task doesn't doesn't seem so bad and confidence as well. My confidence personally was never the greatest but getting in karate and especially again being a female athlete that's helped boost my confidence and seeing how far I've went and I've done the same things the guys have done or even more i. I can still, you know, get to that level and still still do well. For rebecca stern she's already accomplished many achievements but right now her main goals are to graduate from memorial university and finish her degrees in black belt. For npr news, I'm becky daly in this is our time to take another look at the weather forecast now and get a bit of a better window into what's going to happen in the coming days. >> And I do hear I did like those graphics we saw in labrador. >> Looks like a beautiful day in the big land. Let's go. Let's go. Let's travel there. All right. >> Here's the look right now what we're seeing with the current conditions across north america. Oh, four degrees in the st john's and everybody else experiencing beautiful conditions and seasonal ones. Now of course we are quite lucky in many respects we're not dealing with the wildfires that B.C. and alberta are dealing with right now. 18 degrees in beautiful fort mcmurray under sunny skies thunder bay seeing 50 degrees and sun and cloud. Let's push a little bit further to the south where we continue to see warm conditions as warm as 28 degrees in missouri, 31 in atlanta and 32 degrees into tampa, florida. Our friends watching in nassau, bahamas at 30 degrees lows in conditions for the next 24 hours north the northwest winds are going to be keeping those temperatures down gusting to around 50 mostly around single digits, low single digits for this evening from the east into central and the burin peninsula. Check out your forecast for eastern newfoundland tomorrow. Mainly cloudy in the morning then mainly sunny in the afternoon. Not really going to see much for temperatures only highs of around eight degrees for the avalon but getting into the teens once you cross into clare anvil gander and mary's town to the northern peninsula west coast and southern regions for this evening expect mainly cloudy skies with a chance of showers from corner brook down to port of basque. Other regions mostly just clear skies mostly cloudy skies rather but no active weather for you. Cool temperatures as well. Your monday forecast for the west is mainly sunny. That's just the way we like it . No real active weather in these regions with the exception of the southwest coast and port au basque is going to see some rain as well up to just ten degrees as your high tomorrow into labrador for this evening mainly clear except mainly cloudy over far north areas of labrador. Otherwise not a bad evening tonight in store for labrador tomorrow mainly sunny in the morning increasing cloud throughout the day from west to the east. Maybe some rain showers developing in the evening for far northern labrador. 2 to 5mm of rainfall possible but rain on tuesday in labrador with snow and mixed precipitation is possible in the north. And some showers coming in for hopedale region on wednesday as well. >> Taking a look now at the five day forecast as mentioned, the east actually has a pretty decent looking week ahead. There is rain again in the forecast but we're going to kind of creep into those temperatures that we want to be in this time of year as high as around 17 for thursday under rainy skies. A little bit cooler in the evening. Of course central newfoundland this week is going to see mostly clear skies to start the week. A bit of a bump coming in for midweek with some rain in the forecast. Temperatures as high though as 25 degrees for thursday. What a day in store for you on thursday. That's going to be absolutely wonderful. Temperatures a lot cooler on monday evening down to just one degree to western newfoundland. A beautiful week ahead with a little bit cooler temperatures starting the week. But rounding out to a beautiful day there on thursday as well. 22 degrees sun and cloud in this forecast all week with some showers coming in on wednesday and friday. And now to labrador west as I mentioned, expect to see some snow rain mixes coming in maybe midweek with temperatures in the low single digits. >> So ideally this might be more of a rain event than a snow one friday could see a snow mix in the morning but not likely to last with temperatures anticipated to get up to 13 degrees eastern. Labrador is going to see a great start to the week and a little bit of precipitation rolling in from tuesday through to and including friday. >> Single digit temperatures should round out the end of the week.
