Weather: Look on the bright side: at least it’s a three-day weekend. Expect clouds today and rain tonight, followed by what’s likely to be a wet President’s Day, with light rain predicted in the morning and again later in the night. Highs for most of the week are supposed to reach into the 50s (barely) dropping into the low 40s and high 30s at night, expect for Saturday night, when it’s supposed to get really cold — down to 30 degrees. At least the week’s forecast doesn’t seem to call for those cold, cold winds that put a chill on yesterday morning.
Traffic: The map and cams: Major streets appeared to be wide open this morning.
Seattle Home Show: Especially considering the forecast, if you are looking for something to do indoors this weekend, the Home Show is underway at the CenturyLink Field Event Center.
The event offers more than 500 home and garden displays reflecting new trends in everything from landscaping to appliances to room decor and makeovers, with information also available on home loans and refinancing so you can afford it all.
