Morning Memo/Sunday: Gray skies … teenage drinking … NBA … and Christmas

Weather:  To those celebrating the holiday, Merry Christmas! To everyone else, here’s hoping for an enjoyable day, when everything’s just a bit quieter. The weather is gray, warm and it likely will rain later today.  High near 48, low tonight around 41. As for tomorrow, there’s a pretty good chance of rain, starting in mid-morning, when the stores should be bustling with gift exchanges. High near 47.

Traffic: Not much to worry about, but there were a number of arrests for DUI overnight. Be smart as you drive home tonight.

Parents, do you know what your kids are up to at your house while you’re away? Should you be fined if underage drinking is going on while you’re out of  town and unaware? Check out our story about a new Mercer Island law.

The NBA starts its much-belated season today: The league and TV networks are hoping absence made fans’ hearts grow fonder. Did it? If you still feel the love, there are five games on TV today.
