Morning Memo/Tuesday: Fatal Lynnwood fire … 520 Bridge commute … Missing sailor…

Weather: As we said yesterday, that chart over there to the right says it’s going to be near 60 degrees tomorrow. Yeah, we’ll see if that happens, although it is warm out there this morning, relatively speaking.  Light showers Thursday and then night temps drop into the low 30s and it could get below freezing in outlying areas. The details.

Traffic: The first day of regular commuter traffic hits the 520 Bridge and its new tolls this morning. Tell us how it’s going for you. We’ll update what’s happening out there throughout the commute. The map and cams.

Fatal fire in Lynnwood: There are reports of a fatal fire in Lynnwood this morning. More to come.

Ranger story: The sad story on the shooting death of National Park Service Ranger Margaret Anderson touched many people and was read and broadcast worldwide. The video above shows Chief Ranger Chuck Young announcing that search teams had found and confirmed the identity of the body of Benjamin Colton Barnes. Barnes was the suspect in Anderson’s slaying.

Seattle sailor found after two weeks: How about the Seattle man who was not heard from for two weeks after setting sail on the waters around the Hawaiian islands and then calls his wife to say he’s OK? A search covering 200,000 square miles was launched but he couldn’t be found. He said he was never in distress.
