Morning Memo/Monday: North Bend deadly fire … Sunshine … Metro changes

Weather: Another beautiful day in Seattle. Highs today will be in the upper 60s or low 70s. The record temperature for this date is 72 degrees, so cross your fingers for a record-breaking day! Compare this to what the Northeast U.S. is experiencing: high winds, rain and even snow in some places. So feel free to partake in a bit of schadenfreude. Here is the National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: Nothing to report so far that might affect your morning commute. Hope it stays that way. The map and cams.

North Bend deadly fire: Law-enforcement officials on Monday continued to search for a man described as a person of interest who lived in a North Bend home with two women whose bodies were discovered Sunday after a fire where the front door had been blocked.

Metro’s big changes: King County Metro Transit is preparing for what it calls the biggest package of route changes in the agency’s history. The winners: riders of the new RapidRide lines. The losers: people who live in some outlying neighborhoods, and disabled riders who strain to reach new stop locations.

Speaking of transit changes: The groundbreaking for the First Hill Streetcar will take place this morning. Track and street construction is expected to start in June. Wherever workers are tearing open and repaving the road, one lane of traffic will be reduced.

Molly Moon’s secrets revealed: Ever wonder what makes Molly Moon’s ice cream so delicious? Recipes for the unique¬†flavors are revealed in a new book. Now you can make salt licorice ice cream at home and avoid the long lines.
