Morning Memo/Sunday: Viaduct still closed … WWU champions … Trayvon Martin march in Seattle

Weather: Could it get any better? In fact, no. Not today. So hurry and get outside, because later today, gray, ultimately wet reality returns — supposedly lasting much of the week.  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed in both directions from the Battery Street Tunnel to the West Seattle Bridge until 5 a.m. Monday. The map and cams.

Congratulations: The Western Washington men’s basketball team won the Division II championship Saturday, defeating Montevallo of Alabama. The victors are expected back home today on a charter flight scheduled to land at Bellingham International Airport at 2 p.m.

A march and vigil in support of the family of Trayvon Martin will be held at 4 p.m. today in Seattle.  This weekend, marches and rallies are being organized around the country as many question why no arrest has been made in the case of the teen’s fatal shooting by a neighborhood-watch volunteer in Florida. Martin, who was wearing a hoodie and carrying Skittles and iced tea, was unarmed.  The Seattle march will go from Greater Mount Baker Baptist Church, 2425 South Jackson St.,  to the MLK Memorial south of the church. March participants plan to wear hoodies, and carry Skittles and iced tea.

Vegfest 2012 concludes today:  The annual vegetarian festival, featuring lots of food as well as health checks, books and more is at Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall. Adults get in for $8, kids 12 and under are admitted free. Details.
