Morning Memo / Sunday: Boater missing … wither KeyArena … Block Party

Weather:  Summer is on hiatus today as clouds rolled in overnight. Chance of rain later this afternoon and highs in the mid to upper 60s. Tomorrow should be rainy as well, giving way later in the afternoon. The rest of the coming week should be more similar to the end of last week, with morning clouds changing to afternoon sunshine.  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: All clear out there right now. The only thing to note is the Highway 520 Bridge will close from 10:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. The map and cams.

Boat aground, man missing: Authorities are continuing to search for Richard Sweezey, whose 1965 Chris Craft was found grounded near Kirkland on Friday. Police found a portable generator running, and Sweezey’s car near the boat’s Portage Bay slip. But no sign of the captain.

Wither the Key: Seattle Times reporter Bob Young breaks down the uncertain future of KeyArena as the city and county consider helping Chris Hansen and friends build a new arena. Can the city-owned venue avoid becoming a white elephant?

Capitol Hill Block Party: You don’t normally put Capitol Hill Block Party and toddlers in the same sentence, but this morning the music-fest is inviting the kids in. There is free ice cream and lemonade from 9 a.m. to 10:30, followed by a free show from Caspar Baby Pants from 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. at Neumos.
