Morning Memo/Wednesday: Winter storm? … Mariners win! … Convicted killer sentencing

Weather: This is getting a bit old… Showers and rain with occasional breaks today through Sunday. Like we said, what gives? Temperatures will be in the upper 40s and low 50s.

The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: A man who apparently had been drinking and walking in the middle of the road was struck by a car and killed near Poulsbo late last night. The map and cams.

Hey, hey, the Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics in their season opener played in Japan today. A 3-1 win in extra innings. The Ms now have the best record this in Major League Baseball. Well, that’s only because this was the only game played so far this season. Was that snarky?

This is spring? A winter storm watch has been issued through tomorrow for the Olympics and Cascades where 1-2 feet of snow could fall, according to the National Weather Service.

The man convicted of stabbing and beating a 28-year-old woman as she begged for her life is scheduled to be sentenced this morning in King County Superior Court. Daniel Threadgill, a club promoter, attacked Jennifer Walstran in August 2010 at the behest of a woman he was working with. Threadgill faces up to 30 years behind bars.

The Boeing worker who lost both legs below the knee in an accident on the job last month is expect to be released from Harborview Medical Center in Seattle today. Josh Divers is expected to talk about his injuries and rehabilitation.
