The Morning Memo / Saturday: Bainbridge fire, more Viaduct changes, holiday activities

Weather: The details. If you see any sun at all today, count yourself fortunate. The forecast calls for some showers today and even more rain today. Sunday’s forecast calls for a 90 percent chance of more rain, with temperatures in the 40s. But there is hope. The sun should make an appearance on Monday.

Traffic: The map and the cams. Expect traffic around the malls and shopping centers as the holiday shopping season begins in earnest, but otherwise the roads should be clear. More changes are coming related to the Viaduct: New detour lanes, parking for Viaduct project.

An elderly woman died after a fire in her Bainbridge home around 3 a.m. Saturday, according to the Associated Press and KOMO. From that report:

The fire was reported at about 3 a.m. Saturday. KOMO-TV reports that flames and smoke were billowing from the single family home by the time crews arrived.

The woman’s dog was also killed. No one else was inside at the time.

 The woman’s name and age were not immediately released.

 The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
