The Morning Memo / Friday: Snow in SnoCo, quake in Omak, carjacker in Seattle

Weather: Snow, snow everywhere, at least in portions of Snohomish County where it’s coming down at 6 a.m. and sticking. Not so much down here in Seattle. Could be cold overnight, like freezing: 31 degrees. Is the furnace working?

The National Weather Service in Seattle says snow showers are likely until about 10 a.m. today, turning to rain showers between then and 4 p.m.

After that, snow showers again are likely, but mixed with rain, according to the Weather Service.

The snow level could drop to as low as 400 feet. If there is an accumulation of snow, it would less than a half an inch. The details.

The story on the Hollywood casting director from Edmonds being a registered sex offender sure got our attention.

A 4.6 earthquake shook the Omak area in Eastern Washington early this morning. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network reports it occurred at 5:09 a.m. That’s a pretty good jolt. USGS info. (AP)

A carjacker on Capitol Hill didn’t get far, according to one of our community news partners, the CHS Capitol Hill Seattle Blog.
