Morning Memo/Sunday: Belltown gunfire … arena deal explained … is Seafair relevant?

Weather: Cloudy again to start off the morning and it may stick around all day, with a chance of rain and thunderstorms throughout the day. Temps should stay around 60 degrees. The drizzle and cooler weather should stick around until Tuesday, but it should be nice the rest of the week. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: Again, roads may be snarled this weekend from multiple road closures and weekend events, including:

• Highway 520 closed from Montlake Boulevard to the I-405 on-ramps until early Monday.

• Pine Street at Broadway closed both directions until early Monday.

• Market Street is closed from 24th Avenue to 20th Avenue due to the Ballard SeafoodFest. Today’s the last day of the festival, if you’re hoping to attend.

Gunfire in Belltown this morning, suspect arrested: Seattle police say gunfire broke out while a crowd gathered in a Belltown parking lot early this morning. Police were dispatched to the 2100 block of First Avenue for a fight in a parking lot. No one was hit.

NBA/NHL arena explained: Need help understanding the intricacies of the potential arena deal? Lynn Thompson does an awesome job of breaking down the big questions surrounding the proposal.

While Sharvil Talati, top with paddle, provided the muscle, Ansuya Somashekar, front, and Vehd Reddy provided the spirit on the Buzz Buzz Milk Carton vessel Saturday in the annual Milk Carton Derby on Green Lake. About 80 boats paddled their way on the 600-foot course (Alan Berner/The Seattle Times).

Is Seafair still relevant? In the 62 years since Seafair started, Seattle grew from a small town to a high-tech metropolis. Is it possible New Seattle still could be interested in this midcentury creation? We sat down with Seafair CEO Beth Knox to answer this question and others.
