Morning memo/Sunday: expect on-again, off-again light snow; body found in Auburn

Weather:   There was on-again, off-again light snow falling in many parts of the Seattle area and in Tacoma this morning, and you can expect more of the same today, with less than half an inch of snow expected to stick by day’s end, and maybe another scant half inch tonight. Monday’s forecast is much the same, but the likelihood of snow increases Tuesday, and come Tuesday night, up to an inch or even three could stay with us. The rain is expected to return Wednesday morning, but don’t count the snow out just yet — up to an inch or two could fall and stick. Come Wednesday night, though, think rain, showers and clouds — and hold that thought the rest of the week.  Ugh. Here is the link to the Weather Service. Also, view photos from yesterday’s snow flurries.

People in Lake Forest Park woke up to up to 3-inches of snow Sunday morning as a winter storm blanketed parts of the Puget Sound area. (Dean Rutz, The Seattle Times).

So … wanna get away?  Just FYI — it’s mostly sunny in Miami today, with temperatures this week expected to be in the mid-70s, and much the same in Honolulu. And it’s nicer still in Cancun, where temperatures are supposed to hover in the high 70s and low 80s all week. Sigh.

Traffic: The map and the cams.

Body found: The body of an unidentified man was found in the driveway of a vacant house Saturday in Auburn. A contractor who had been hired to clear brush from a neighboring field found the body at 11112 S.E. 304th St. Auburn police say the man appeared to suffer a violent death, though they did not give additional details.
