Morning Memo/Wednesday: Boy shot … Snow … TV falls on kid

Weather:  Rain and snow showers this morning (Did you see that burst of snow yesterday afternoon?). Rain tomorrow. Showers Friday and Saturday. Passes could get 1-2 feet of snow by the weekend. Did you know it’s supposed to be 81 in Chicago and in the 70s in New York City today? It’s expected to be 51 degrees here tomorrow, but, well, come on, 51 degrees? Yippee! The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic:      The map and cams.

Television falls on boy:  A 2-year-old boy is in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle being treated for a head injury after a 27-inch television fell on his head in Yakima. The toddler is said to be improving. See the story in the Yakima Herald-Republic.
