Weather: A 50 percent chance of showers today isn’t good news, but it gets worse. Tomorrow there’s a 90 percent chance of showers. Hmmm, don’t like that. Ah, but Thursday… Here’s something we haven’t heard in a forecast in a while: Partly sunny. The details.

Traffic: The maps and cams.

Julia Biryukova, pictured with her missing son, says he vanished after she left him in her silver Acura Integra.

Oops, his pants fell down: A guy who apparently tried to take a woman’s bag at the Bremerton ferry terminal didn’t get very far because as he made his getaway, his pants fell down. A witness who saw him grab the bag said he was running away and when his pants fell down, he tripped. The story’s from The Kitsap Sun.

The sad saga of the missing 2-year-old boy in Bellevue continues. Officer Carla Iafrate, spokeswoman for the Bellevue Police Department, said: There are still many unanswered questions…

The Skagit County prosecutor has dropped charges against Colton Harris-Moore in the Barefoot Bandit case, allowing charges from several other counties to be consolidated in Island County. (AP)
